Default turning tables into labels, possible?

No. It's possible you need to add a heading row to your table so that Word
has something to call the merge fields.

someone sent me a mailing list as a table that has over 100 names on
there.
can i just convert the table into a mailing label format and print, so i
wont
have to start a new contact list in access and retype all that info
again?
the table has columns for: first name, last name, address, city, state,
zip.
can i even do a mail merge? i want simple. i dont care how it's done.
i
want a simple mail out without having to retype all of this. it's in
microsoft word 2007. thanks a bunch

The labels are done and everything. What i described below is what I needed
to do. There was a header row. However, there needed to be header row
delimiters to separate the data. So I chose for tabs to be the separaters.

But there was no need to convert the table to text. Word is quite happy with
a table as a data source; I use them all the time.
