Printing a sheet of labels

So, I bought an A4 sheet of labels today, the sheet says to use Avery Code L7173, however I can't find anywhere to select or input this code.

Following the instructions on, it tells me to click on the Format tab, and select my label format, however when I click on the format tab, all it does is asks me to manually enter a bunch of settings (settings which aren't really explained anywhere either).

It also seems that I have to link it to a database, which I don't have, as I just want to print out a sheet of identical address labels. Not some kind of mail-merge.

What am I missing / doing wrong?

Is this an answer to the original question by @Milambar ? Answers are to answer original questions, not to ask something (new questions should be created, or at least comments to the questions/answers that are unclear).

Following the instructions you pointed to, it specifies the label format and selection are found on the Labels tab page (in the lower right corner) and not on the Format tab.

All the settings you state aren't explained anywhere are in the online/offline help files (F1). More specific information on this can be found in the LO documentation found here -> LibreOffice Writer Guide in Chapter 14 - Mail Merge.

You don't need a database to print individual labels or a page of the same labels. Please see my answer in this post -> How to create a blank labels document.
