Selecting a specific row/column to print my designed label

Using Word 2000:
I designed a shipping label, company logo included, using the Avery #5164
label template. I only print one label at a time, never an entire sheet, and
each time I only need to manually type the shipping address.

Is there a way to print my designed label w/ company logo using Word's
single label print feature, selecting the specific row/column of my choice?

If not, does a newer version of Word support "positional printing" on Avery
label sheets for a user-designed label?

Any input would be helpful. I've been searching the web, but to no avail.

Best Regards,
Bill

I don't believe there's any way to do this built into Word. You could probably
accomplish it with a macro, though. I'd probably approach it with a UserForm
(custom dialog box) that lets you specify the row and column, plus type in the
address. The macro that then executes would delete everything else from the
table that makes up the labels and insert the address in the label you want to
print.

The word.vba.general newsgroup would be a good place to pursue that, if you're
interesting in creating your own macro.
