There is a wizard for that, but even Open Office 3.1 makes this 
unnecessarily complicated and downright annoying, e.g.:


      Place the cursor at the last text position (after the last field)
      in the first label.


      Choose *Insert - Fields - Other*, and go to the *Database* tab.


      Select the type *Next record*, click on *Insert* and then on *Close*.


      You can now synchronize the labels. Click on the *Synchronize*
      *Labels* button in the small window.

I just finished a job for distribution next week, and having found  
gLabels vastly easier would recommend it to anyone over dealing with 
Open Office for this task.
