I've spent hours searching through Microsoft Online Help and I'm getting a headache plowing through information that isn't helpful. I'm stuck trying to create mail labels in Word using an Excel spreadsheet as my data source. I printed out the MS Office Online Help Instructions for "Print labels by using Excel data in a Word mail merge" and followed it verbatim. I get as far as Select Recipients, Use An Existing List, Browse, Look In List, Clicking on Folder with saved workbook with data, Open, Select Table, OK... THEN, I get the message, "Word was unable to open the data source". AAAARRRGGGGHHHH!
I've heard there are Newsgroups and User Groups but I don't understand how they work. Then I thought of ivillage! I'm hoping someone with expertise in Excel/Word mail merge will help me out. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
I'm going to lie down with a wet cloth over my eyes for a bit and hope someone will have replied when I'm back up...
