Sticky labels? Sticky problem.

Much gnashing of teeth chez nous tonight as we tried to persuade StarOffice 8 to create some address labels from a spreadsheet (one address per row), something which Julie apparently does quite regularly in MS Office.

From the online help, it seems there's a nice little wizard for creating them from a database, but from a spreadsheet? Nada.

Seriously, how many home users are going to learn how to set up a database just to print a few address labels? Anyone know if it's possible to do what we want?

Update: Julie figured out how to do it, pointed in the right direction by an email from John Corrigan... File->Wizards->Address Data Source->Other External Source, from which you can choose a spreadsheet as the data source. Thanks John!
