Word 2010 - MERGE Labels using the Wizard not working

Here's the problem:
1.  I use the mailings tab and start the merge wizard.
2.  I choose the labels option button
3.  I choose Avery 5160 label manual feed
4.  Table gets created on my document
5.  I select USE EXISTING LIST recipients from an EXCEL worksheet with headers
6. I choose all recipients
7. I choose next "arrange your labels.
8.  All fields are correct.
10.  I choose PREVIEW
11.  I choose complete my merge.
PROLBEM:  I only get one page of lablels!  Yet I have hundreds of names I need merged.  I need Word to create the additional pages of addresses..

SAME THING HAPPENS WHEN I want to generate a bunch of merge envelopes.  only one envelope gets created.

What are the Settings in the Print dialog box?
ie, Print current page, Print all pages

Are you set to print One-sided, print both-sides, etc?

> " I choose Avery 5160 label manual feed "

perhaps you aren't getting the next sheet in for it to trigger the printer it is there?

in the finished document there's only one page.
It's not "one page is only printing"
It's "there's only one page in the finished document"
perhaps when you choose manual label feed, you only get one page -- what about emptying the paper tray and manually feeding without telling Word? Then be good about feeding the label paper in quickly.  The other option, to avoid jamming, is to generate a new document with everything and just print them one page at a time.

Instead of merging directly to the printer, merge to a new document -- then print from that.  You will have more control and can also reprint a page if the printer jams.
