Trouble creating labels in Word 2003 from an MS Works DB

by bucksguy14 / August 23, 2006 5:29 AM PDT

I have an MS Works DB that I want to create mailing labels from in Word 2003. When I select my Works DB, it only brings in the first record. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried this about 10 times and keep getting the same result. I never had this problem before I starting using Works!

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, neither of the links you provided solves the problem. I still wind up with just the first record. However, your suggestion to use the "Save As" did the trick! By saving the Works Db as a dBase file, I was able to pull it into Word and complete my labels project. Thanks for the help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
