printing labels

First I created a database (table) within LibreOffice base. I then selected File-New-Labels etc, selected the database file. Selected database fields and clicked New Document but all I got was etc on each label all the way down the sheet! No individual names, addresses as in my database file. What’s happening?

That’s normal. Use File/Print and choose Yes to the print form letter question. This opens a dialog where you can choose which records to include and where the output goes (printer or file)

Select the records to print (all, selected or range). Hint: print to File to save paper until you are satisfied with the output.

Don’t forget to save the label document so you don’t have to recreate it each time. Next time you want to print labels just open the label document and print it with your selected options.
