    How do we make labels using Pages? Tried to make labels using Word, but that didn't work out ... said there wasn't room to merge my 20 line .xls file so I copied and pasted .xls lines into Numbers.

    Looked on line for instructions and found a complicated way to set up a table. Did that and and have found the Edit/Merge button.
    But now the Merge tells me I'm missing some target columns. Confirmed that column titles are names desired by the Merge, e.g. Home Street, Home City, etc., but it still doesn't recognize Prefix, First Name, or Last Name to complete the merge.

    Surely, I'm missing the simple Tools/Labels/MergeAddresses button somehow.

    btw - trying to set up for OfficeMax 1" x 2 5/8" label page

    Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks,

    I didn't vote because my choices aren't there. I still use AppleWorks for labels. But if I didn't have AppleWorks I wouldn't use Pages, I'd use Address Book.
