Word - Copy Mailing Labels

You have custom labels that you would like to copy to a new computer or user.

Export label setting from registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word\Custom Labels. Click on the .reg file to import it onto the new computer.


This will probably only work for exporting from and to the same version of Word. In this case the export was done on Word 2000.

From Windows go to Start => Run => enter regedit
Locate the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word\Custom Labels
Note that this will only be there if you have created a custom label.
Select "Custom Labels" folder => Registry menu => "Export Registry File...",
Give it a name and click the Save button
Now you can click on this saved file.reg to import the setting to the new computer or user.
