    I have a mail merge of labels and I need to add an address label in a
    particular spot because they are sorted by zipcode. How do I add one in the
    middle of my labels so that it just moves the rest of them down a label? Is
    this possible?

    This newsgroup is for Microsoft Access database software, "mail merge" is
    usually a Microsoft Word term, and you style yourself "outlook lady", so
    there's no way of telling what software you're actually using!

    An Access table does not have a native order. It may happen to show
    records in a usual order, but you should never count on that order being
    repeated. If you want a specific order you need to provide for it. If you
    need it in zip code order, just sort on the zip code. You can sort in a
    query, report or form. I would guess you are using Access as a source for a
    Word merge. Base that merge on a query based on your table sorted in the
    query by the zip code.
