All you need is the information in a table (a spreadsheet is ok); then, you can create a Writer document that has special fields marking the location of each piece of information you want on the label. OOo can then "merge" the data in the table with the Writer document and print the labels for you.
Here's a good article on how this works: http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/art ... office_org
First and foremost, I'd like to thank you (acknak) for solving this issue. I haven't went about attempting to print off any shipping labels just yet, but I'm sure that this will work just fine. I'm pretty new to Open Office and I was trying to figure out the same thing as Alsatianx here! I work in wholesale, so we ship stuff out all the time. We're trying to get away from the tedious task of taping all of our labels on and using stickers. Like Alsatianx, we're using Avery Template 8126 shipping
labels. Unfortunately, I wasn't sure how the heck to format the page to print properly. Either way, I'm glad that someone managed to figure it out -- so thank you! I'll be sure to come back if I have anymore issues. Thanks again SO much!!! Sorry for bringing up an older topic. . .but you really did help me out! =D
