    So how exactly do you create mailing labels with Excel? I want to be able to print them on Avery mailing label stickers. Any help would be great.

    Better to use Word for that as far as I'm concerned. There is a function especially for that.

    Like the previous poster said, Word is the way to go. Excel is generally used as the "data" part of a mail merge that would print labels in Word. Excel by itself would have a hard time printing labels unless you manually made a layout and typed in the data by hand - but that sounds like a waste of time.

    Ok cool. I have all the data in an Excel spreadsheet, is there an easy way to transfer that data into word or do I just have to copy and paste?
