How do I prepare various mailing labels on one page?

I am using Microsoft Word. I know how to prepare multiple labels in
Wordperfect, but I can not figure out how to do it in Word.

I need to print mailing labels for various individuals. Each label is
different. And I only need one label for each address. Sometimes I may need
only 1 label, but usually I want between 3 and 10 labels.

If I prepare 1, I know I can tell Microsoft Word which label to use on the
label sheet (Avery 5160). But when I want more than 1 label, I can't figure
out how to get Word to allow more than 1 label. I can print an entire sheet
of the same label or 1 label, but not multiple labels with different
addresses on the same label sheet at one printing.

Can this be done in Microsoft Word? If so, how do I do it?

For addresses that you aren't going to use again, leave the Address box
blank in the Labels dialog and click the New Document button. You'll get a
page containing a table (if you don't see it, click Table > Show Gridlines),
and you can type a different address in each cell.

If you use the same addresses repeatedly, set up a mail merge source
document and merge to labels
(http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/MailMerge/CreateADataSource.htm and
