XP WORD DOT MATRIX PROBLEM

RHSMITH001
I get a page eject after each label using XP/Word and a dot matrix(Okidata ML380) printer. I have tried several drivers, none works.

Everything worked well with Win 98 & Word.

    As you need to tell the OS that the printer should be printing labels not address pages.

    You'll find it easier to do this in Excel as it has it's own designable Labels that should allow the printer to work with.

    Have you tried the Generic / Text Only driver?

    Also, in File, Page Setup, Paper, try setting the page size settings to Custom and enter the dimensions of your labels.
