Default How do I set up the fields in mail merge word 07 from my data base

I have been trying to use the mail merge wizard to create a mailing of labels.
My problem is when I try to set up the fields from the data base, they run together. What am I doing wrong? Word 07

Easiest is to insert an 'Address Block', but inserting fields one at a time is still easy.

It sounds like perhaps you aren't typing the characters (spaces, etc) that should separate the fields. For example, you might:
Insert FirstName, then type a space and then insert LastName, and then press Enter
Insert Address then press Enter
Insert City, then type a comma and a space and then...

I tried the address thing, but it left off the names and companies for some of my others. I have a mailing that I am doing and there are regular addresses and some that are to a certain person at a business. The address book is leaving off the certain person and business. It just prints the address, city etc.
Hey Thanks

so, are you having trouble or all working now?

Did you put spaces between the merge fields?
When you say they "run together"... up and down or side-to-side or what?
