MORE INFORMATION

   1. Q. How do I create mailing labels for common label sizes?

      A. Word versions 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1 supply several main documents
         you can use to print common mailing label sizes. For
         information on the mailing label stationery supplied with Word,
         see the following resources:

         Word Versions 5.0 and 5.1

          - The Mailing Labels ReadMe document, located in the Mailing
            Labels folder in the Sample Documents folder.

          - The "Microsoft Word User's Guide," Chapter 34, "Mailing
            Labels."

          - For ImageWriter(R) instructions, see "Setting Up Labels for
            ImageWriter Printers" on pages 636 through 639 in the
            "Microsoft Word User's Guide".

         Word Version 4.0

          - The Using Mailing Labels document, located in the Mailing
            Labels folder.

          - The 13 mailing label documents located in the Mailing Label
            Documents folder.

          - For more information on print merges and tables, see pages
            293 and 362 in "Reference to Microsoft Word."

          - For ImageWriter instructions, see "Printing Mailing Labels on
            an ImageWriter" on pages 171 through 174 in "Reference to
            Microsoft Word".

   2. Q. What if I have nonstandard mailing labels? How do I create
         mailing labels in Word for custom-sized labels?

      A. You can create custom mailing label templates using the Table
         feature in Word for the Macintosh. You can use these templates
         to generate mailing labels that print on an Apple(R)
         LaserWriter(R) or Apple ImageWriter printer. Using these
         templates, you can enter the mailing label information
         directly, or you can create a print merge main document for
         merging to a data document.
