Where can I download a template for a specific Avery label? I need to create labels for #5160 - 3 across and 10 down - 1" tall x 2 5/8" wide. If it is already on my hard drive after installing Libre, I couldn't find it.

I want to learn how to Merge an .xls or .xlsx file into the fields like was possible in my old Microsoft version (Office 2000) .. I can't do my job without it. (Yes, I'm ancient and proud of it)

HELP! Thanks in advance.

Open Writer, click in the menu File>New>Labels. In the "Labels" dialog box you can select the label brand and the type. Is that what you are looking for?

Yes ebot, and thanks for answering.

Definitely a learning curve, and it took me almost all day to "get it". But, thanks to the "Help" Instructions, Chapter 14 "Mail Merge", I was able to get several sets of labels finished & printed yesterday. My #5160 label is under the "Avery letter size" grouping.

Looking at the LibreOffice method as a whole, I found that it is versatile and adaptable to just about any situation where lists of data need to be printed or saved from a database file.

I liked the final result with one exception. For this particular set of labels, I wanted to have one line larger than the rest of the text on each label. While I could edit the first label's first line, I couldn't edit the rest of them easily before or after the merge. I know there's a way, I just don't have the time to work it out.
