I use Microsoft Excel for generating labels for 35mm slides using Avery
adhesive labels.  It has the advantage of retaining a database-style record
of your label entries, too, if you so desire.  There is an Avery label
printing "wizard" on the Microsoft Office installation CD (or there is on
mine, at least). You can also download an Avery program for a reasonable
price from their web site at  I don't know if this is
exactly applicable to your slides, but it might be worth a try.

I have also tried using Access for this purpose, but the learning curve is
pretty steep, compared to Excel.

Hope this helps.  (I have no financial interest in Microsoft or Avery, and
I'm not related to Bill Gates.  I just use their stuff.)
