CustomLabels Collection Object (Word)

A collection of CustomLabel objects available in the Label Options dialog box. This collection includes custom labels of all printer types (dot-matrix, laser, and ink-jet printers).

Use the CustomLabels property to return the CustomLabels collection. The following example displays the number of available custom labels.

MsgBox Application.MailingLabel.CustomLabels.Count

Use the Add method to create a custom label. The following example adds a custom mailing label named "My Label" and sets the page size.

Set ML = _ 
 Application.MailingLabel.CustomLabels.Add(Name:="My Labels", _ 
 DotMatrix:=False) 
ML.PageSize = wdCustomLabelA4

Use CustomLabels(Index), where Index is the custom label name or index number, to return a single CustomLabel object. The following example creates a new document with an existing custom label layout named "My Labels."

Set ML = Application.MailingLabel 
If ML.CustomLabels("My Labels").Valid = True Then 
 ML.CreateNewDocument Name:="My Labels" 
Else 
 MsgBox "The My Labels custom label is not available" 
End If

The index number represents the position of the custom mailing label in the CustomLabels collection. The following example displays the name of the first custom mailing label.

If Application.MailingLabel.CustomLabels.Count >= 1 Then 
 MsgBox Application.MailingLabel.CustomLabels(1).Name 
End If
