MORE INFORMATION
================

Step 1. Define the Page Size
----------------------------

1. Set your page size to equal the width and height of the Avery 8160
   Label, using the following steps:

   a. On the File menu, click Page Setup.

   b. In the "Choose a Publication Layout" section, click Special Size.

   c. In the Width box, type 2.63". In the Height box, type 1.00".

   d. Click OK.

2. Make sure everything in your publication fits within this page size.

Step 2. Define the Page Options
-------------------------------

1. On the File menu, click Print.

2. Click Page Options.

3. Click Custom Options.

4. In the Type In Spacing section, enter the following values:

      Side Margin              0.19"
      Top Margin               0.50"
      Horizontal Gap           0.12"
      Vertical Gap             0.00"

5. Click OK three times.

These settings define a page that contains three columns of ten labels per
column on an 8.5" by 11" page.

NOTE: The unprintable region on the side margin on your printer may be
greater than 0.19 inches. This may affect how the left-hand column of
labels prints. Print a test sheet on a plain piece of paper before you
print your labels.

If you want each address label to contain different information, you can
use the Publisher mail merge feature to print thirty different Address
Labels on each sheet of Avery 8160 stock. For help on setting up and using
a mail merge, use the following steps:

1. On the Help menu, click Show Index.

2. In the Type A Keyword box, type "Mail Merge" (without the quotation
   marks).

If you save this publication as a template, you will be able to use the
template for future publications. For help saving a publication as a
template, use the following steps:

1. On the Help menu, click Show Index.

2. In the Type A Keyword box, type "Templates" (without the quotation
   marks).

3. Select "Creating Templates" in the "Click The Entry You Want" list.
