Creating a Label Template in Office 2016

Office 2016 Microsoft Word has some differences to past versions of Microsoft Word, but creating labels remains just as easy.

All you need is a ruler, and your labels. You just need to know where to click.

Follow the clicks in the picture.
Click 1 is a click on the Mailing tab
Click 2 is a click on Labels, and this opens the Envelopes and Labels dialog box.
Click 3 is a click on the picture of the label, and this opens the Label Options dialog box
Click 4 is a click on the New Label Button, and this opens up the Label Details dialog box, and this is where you’ll put in all of the details of the label.
Now you can get measuring and create your own label template.

How to create a label template

M-5352 10 Up Copier Labels

The M-5352 Labels are 10 up (10 labels per sheet) that can be used in all plain toner copiers. These labels are great because they take up almost all of the real estate on the page which offers more space to print, whereas the ML-1000 has small borders on the left and right.
If you’re having trouble creating a template, no need to fret, we’ve created a template specifically for the M-5352.

Viewing Microsoft Word Cell Grid lines -Seeing the Label Update

In our old post we showed how to make Cell Grid Lines visible in Microsoft Word 2007. We’ll need an update to that. It’s pretty much the same, now it just looks different. For Microsoft Word 2010, or Office 365, you’ll find it under the Design tab, then click on Borders, and select “View Gridlines” from the drop down menu.

Microsoft Excel Import from CSV Tip for Printing Correctly Formatted Zip Codes on Address Labels

When you get a list from a client in CSV (comma separated values) format that you’re going to print address labels, or any kind of project , there are occasions when you’d like to import and work on the list in excel. However, when you import your data into Microsoft Excel 2016 and earlier versions, the zip code field, if you have one is recognized as a number. So after the import, all of the records with leading zeros, get stripped of leading zeros. All of the states in the northeastern united states with leading zeros are turned into 4 digit numbers. The Puerto Rico zip codes have two leading zeros and show up as three digit numbers.

The way around this is pretty straightforward:

1. Open your CSV file in a text editing program like notepad or Notepad++ (my personal favorite), and select and copy all of the data to the clipboard. You can use Ctrl-a, then Ctrl-c.
2. Open a blank Excel document, click inside the first cell, Cell A1, and the paste entire contents of the clipboard by typing Ctrl-v.
3. The first column should be selected after pasting, if not, select the first column, and click Data, then “Text to Columns”
4. Chose Delimited, and click Next, then choose Comma and ” for text qualifier then click Next
5. Choose “Text” for column data format for each column. (unless you have number that you need to sum()). The Zip code field format should be formatted as Text. Although it’s a number, keeping it formatted as Text will preserve the leading zeros.

Now you’ll have correct zip codes with leading zeros.
