In Word 2003, I have a list of names and addresses in a document and I want to highlight that list and be able to print avery 5160 labels for each of them. But when I  go to the Tools menu, choose Letters and Mailings, then Envelopes and Labels. Click on the Options button in the dialog box and choose your specific Avery label type. Click OK in that box, that will take me to the previous dialog box where I will designate either Full page of the same label, which just  gives me a full page of the first name I have highlighted, or Single label, which will just give me one label of the first name highlighted. Is there some way to do this where it will give me one avery label for each person whose name I have highlighted in the document?

Thanks,

Try using Mail Merge instead.  I use it for a whole mailing list.  The list can be in text, a database, or any format that makes each user address identifiable.

This is exactly what I needed to know. Doing it the conventional way, which is what I was trying wasn't yielding any results suitable to my purpose, but as soon as I did the Mail Merge as the Expert suggested, no problem whatsoever. Did just what I wanted and works like a charm. The answer I was looking for!
