I have an excel spreadsheet with names in one column and street and city address in another. I want to make a simple mail merge so I can make labels but I can not figure it out. Any ideas? I am using the mail merge wizard, but when I merge it is all blank.

You merely have to name the Excel spreadsheet as the source of the data for the mailmerge (I think it is about the 3rd step) where you can select browse to use an existing list (MS calls it a database on this step, even though a spreadsheet isn't really a database).
Have you done all that?
Also, you might want to consider splitting the street and city into two separate columns, just to make it a bit more flexible in arranging your data.

Thanks, I ended up figuring it out but did not get to post yet. I forgot to name or associate the cells! It worked. Thanks!
