    Thanks for your reply, I did not go to the genius bar so any help/hints would be appreciated. I am working on a Mac, but on Word 2004 and Excel 2004. Since I needed some of the labels I emailed them to my daughter's computer and printed them on a PC :eek:, using Word 2003, But I still have some to print, but on my version of word it says "Data Merge Manager" and I could not figure out how to get my Excel document in ?? Thanks.

    I don't think you bring the excel document in, I think it links to it... then on your form you pull the data fields and place them where you want. I could be wrong on the Mac side. I have not used it. But I don't think it could be that much different then it windows counterpart.

    This should answer your question:

    now, does anyone know if it's possible in the mac version to pick and choose entries from the workbook? for instance, you have 2000 rows of names and addresses and you want to be able to click "Joe Bloggs" to add him to your label printout in the Data Merge Manager instead of having to copy and paste the specific people you want into a single new spreadsheet?
