    Well, I'm not doing something right I can't get my addresses to mail merge. I've downloaded the xl spreadsheet and 'saved as' but when I go to merge it, it is not listed as an option in my documents. not sure what I'm doing wrong. I would hate to have to write all my labels

    I can only open as 'read only' because it stated it was an older version, is that why it's not an option in my documents?

    This is what April sent me for the last Boom.

    Just in case anyone needs help with labels try this:
    Open and save the excel spreadsheet in your documents. Open up word, click on mailings, start mail merge and then choose the step by step wizard. From the right choose labels, then next, then choose label options from right, the box that pops up 5160 is generally the 3 rows 10 per row address label format, then next to select recipients, browse and choose the excel spreadsheet, click next arrange labels click address block, match fields in the lower right, first name should be swapper name, last name & suffix not matched, company (this is optional) you can put their boardname here or not matched, address 1 will be street name, address 2 not matched, city will be city, state & zip, state & postal code will be not matched and country or region will be country. Once you select these fields click okand then ok again and then update all labels on the right hand side. Then click on next preview your labels then next complete the merge and then print on the right. You should be good to go. I would recommend not putting their board name on the labels as this may make them too large.

    Thanks so much for posting the mail merge directions Ruth
    If anyone needs the newer version of excel format just let me know and I will save and send it to you. I always save as a 97-2003 version because a lot of people I know do not have the newer version of excel.

    Thank you for posting the directions for the mail merge. It sure saves me a lot of time. My labels are all printed up and ready to go, including for returning the blocks to their owners.
    I keep everything together in a box, including my extra fabric that I send out.
    No excuse now not to get everything ready to mail out this weekend. Just have to pick up postage on the way home tonite. I have chosen to use up a lot of my animal prints. I want to make up some children's quilts for donations.

    April, I just sent you a PM. I was using your instructions from Boom 6 - I hunted it down but I think it's not an option to merge because I opened it in 'read only' format - that is the only way I could open it. Can you tell I'm not that computer literate?

    Thanks for posting it Ruth!

    You are very welcome, just in case there are still issues, for my PC, I had to use the Avery Wizard inside of MS Word 2007, that was a much easier Merge!

    My husband decided that he needed to wreck his car and then about 2 weeks later wreck my truck so I do not have a car. So I have to wait until this weekend to get any fabric to send to ya'll. Since we are using my husband's work truck. So I will be mailing out all the fabrics soon. I think I will be doing 3 different fabrics. Not sure yet. But this time I will not be late mailing out my blocks to everyone. I promise. My health problems are getting a little better. When I had my first brain bleed they said I had 2 more that could burst and well one did and maybe the other one will not give me problems. I have lived through both bursts. I just hope if this 3rd one goes I will be ok to. I know I will I feel good about this one. I know it sounds weird but I think this last one will not cause me any problems for a very long time. LOL Ok have a wonderful weekend and Happy Quilting!!

    Do you mail the blocks back as you finish them, or do you wait and mail them all at once.

    I recieved 2 squishys from this group and I am going to make them and mail out my fat 8th out with them since I haven't mailed out my f8ths yet. I think it will save on postage a little. I make them as I have time and hopefully as they arrive.
    I love the quilting board with all the fun things to do.
    received: abbys mom and ljdugas31

    Sent all my squishies out today. Got two different answers from the post office as to what to do about postage. So, if anyone has to pay for my squishies, please let me know.
