If Works does not have an automated way to create labels, export the
table(s) with the labels' data to Excel. Link to the Excel worksheet(s) from
Access. This creates Access-like tables from the Excel worksheets. Create
what ever queries you need for the data on the labels. Use the Labels Wizard
under the reports tab to create a labels report based on the query.
