How to create mail labels?

I have an ODT document made for label mailing and want to use it with OpenTBS. I don't understand what I need to do in that document to make it work as when I use it to create labels in LibreOffice. I mean, I only need to know what to place inside my labels document. Actually, I have this in the first label of my document "labels.odt" (created as a label with "Avery $ - L7159 Address"):

[bloque.organismo;block=tbs:page]
[bloque.direccion]
[bloque.localidad]
[bloque.cp] [bloque.provincia]

The rest or labels are void, but if I copy that code inside others labels, the result after merging is the same label data repeated.

I don't understand how to make this work. Any help, please?

Thank you

Re: How to create mail labels?

Hi Rafael,

I have some difficulties to find a good solution to merge labels with OpenTBS for an ODT template.

The TBS Serial Display feature should be the convenient solution, but I cannot succeed in merging labels with the page.
This is because ODT save the labels before the page break definition. So all labels are merged on the same page.
I'm still working on it...

Re: How to create mail labels?

It could be quite simple if you design the labels in cells of a table.
Then all becomes easy.
