By | April 19, 2010

Use of labels has been greatly identified in terms of mailing due to ease of printing and accuracy of the data. Several business methodologies maintaining relation with clients through mails use the Avery standard labels to be used to quickly consolidate client details and attach the same on any material. Multiple labels can be printed on the single page using Avery standard label printing as shown below.

The question is, can we do it from CRM with least customizations? Well, the answer is YES.

How to go about this?

1. Create a Local Template for merging.
Open Microsoft Word and create a new document.

Save the same with name My Template at any location on your disc.

Select an option Edit a local template then merge it option and then click on Continue button.

Select a template My Template you have created above from the disc.

If you are using Word 2007 you will be directly put onto Mailing tab.

Now this needs to be formatted for Avery label printing. Under Start mail merge select Labels option.

Set below values
Label Vendors: Avery US Letter
Product Number: 8376
Click OK button.Click on Edit Recipient List button which reads the record set attached and then click on OK button.

With the above set the record sets are formatted on template as shown below.

Now just below «Next Record» you can put your Merge fields from Insert Merge Field tab as shown below.
