HELP!

Pat Woodhouse
Is there ANY possibility I could talk to someone who could walk me through getting  spreadsheet data onto labels?  If not, can very specific directions be emailed to me?
When I was working I had a PC and could do labels practically blindfolded because I had very good instructions.  Now that I’m retired, and no longer have a PC, but rather a Mac and someone suggested using Open Office.  I took their advice and have been doing pretty well with it, but the labels really stump me.  The little information I could find was not helpful because I didn’t understand what I was reading.  I have a spreadsheet with 225 names and addresses, and I NEED to get labels printed.
Thank you for any help you can provide,Pat Woodhouse

Hi Pat,
This is an email based volunteer staffed support list. Sorry no phone.

However many helpful people will try to assist you. For my own effort, let
me refer you to:

Instructions, with pictures, for creating labels in Writer. Bonus,
screenshots are from a Mac. Last updated Feb, 2020
https://www.wikihow.com/Print-Address-Labels-Using-OpenOffice

More instructions with pictures.The web page is rather recent as it was
last updated July 2018. The screenshots are from Windows though which may
make following them a bit more difficult
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/OOo3_User_Guides/Writer_Guide/Print_labels_from_db

Try the above and if you don't succeed get back to the list telling us
which instructions you used and at what step you encountered problems.
