    I help the local Pop Warner football league with their computer needs.
    I use their machine to print mailing labels for their kids. It has worked fine until recently. Now when I attempt to import the Excel info to Word to print the labels I get an out of memory message and the program shuts down.

    Using a Dell Demension celeron w/ 256 meg mem. Office 2K
    Any ideas on a fix?

    How exactly are you importing the Excel info to Word? Maybe you have an Excel list of the addresses and you've made this the data source for a mailmerge in Word.

    For mailing label jobs, I always stick with just one application (Word) rather than having 2 separate apps "communicating" (or trying to).

    If you are using an Excel list as a mailmerge data source, I'd recommend that you copy it into a fresh Word doc (as formatted text, so that it becomes a table) and then base the mailmerge on that instead.

    It might also be helpful to see the exact error message if you could either take a screen shot or write it down the next time it happens. And which program shuts down? Excel or Word?
