File Labels

I am using Access 2003.
Because I have to print out new file labels each year, I created a Db with
all of my file names. I print out filing labels for manilla folders and
labels for Pendaflex hanging folders. I am having a small problem with
printing the labels for Pendaflex hanging folders.
My file name is at the bottom of each label. I would like it either at the
top or in the middle of the label and would like it to print on two lines
when 1 line is not long enough. I have no problem with this on filing
labels for the manilla folders, but can't seem to make it work on the labels
for the Pendaflex folders. Can anyone give me an idea on how to make this
work? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you Pete for answering so quickly. This sounds like a good idea, but I
have never used an Access Database as a source file in a Word Merge. Can you
explain to me or point me to an article that would explain to me how to do
this? I would certainly appreciate it.
Again - thank you so much for your help. Aurora

Just use the wizard and when it asks for data source select the link and
change it to Access. Use the file search box select your access file and
then the table. Everything is the same. Remember to use <nextrecord> on
your lables or you'll get get whole sheets of the same labels. The
hyperlink I provided below will provide you step by step instructions.

I could not open the link you sent me. Could you send it to me again? By
doing the merge this way, will I be able to specifiy which records I want to
print labels for? Ex: I have a check field that I check for the file names
I want this year. (We do not print all File names every year). In other
words, I only want to print the file names where the check field is checked.
Will I be able to do this?
