Printing Avery Labels using Word template.

P: n/a
I have a printing task that is driving me crazy but I think I figured
out a solution. My whole office is on office 2000 so I was thinking I
could harness the power of a word template to print labels.

Has anyone ever done this?

I was thinking of creating a template, using the label wizard in word
and then programmatically dumping data into the form. After this is
done the labels could be printed.
Any good ideas about how I should do this?

Hi
From word open the VBA editor and create the template with the fields that
you want to have. Search the web on " word automation" and you would find
many samples of that . check for example http://www.cdev.co.uk/ . you can
also do that from external project (C# for example ) by adding refernce to
appropriate DLLs

It's called a "mail merge".
You don't need to program anything.
