Creating a label in Access 2002 - Avery number not in pre-loaded list in Access label wizard

P: n/a
Hello, all -

I would like to produce Avery labels, #5931, from a database I've built for
a client. I can't seem to find this Avery number in the list of labels that
pops up when one uses the label wizard.

This is a label for CD and DVD media - Word 2002 has the template built in,
but Access 2002 doesn't seem to. Does this mean I have to use a "mail-merge"
type activity, or can I get Access to use the Word template somehow?

Any help appreciated, as always. Thank you.

The mail merger option would work. However, have you tried the Customize button on the
first page of the Label Wizard? Once you have it open, click the New button and fill out
the details for the labels. Since these are normally only one label across, you will leave
a lot of the boxes as zero.

Thank you, Wayne. I completely overlooked that. I'll give it a try.

A bit OT but derivative of the original question, what are the most popular
labels sizes (top 5)?

TIA.
