    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
