Default Avery 5385 Label Setup

I need to create a label template for this exact size so I can print these
out for roll o dex cards. I used the mail merge wizard to get my contacts
information from outlook. My main problem is that it won't allow me to type
in each label with the cursor on both the right and the left. I need the
company name in the first row to the left, and the phone number to the
right. When i go click on the allign text right, it move my text i just
typed with the allign text left, over to the right. I have to have these in
this format because all the company names wont be the same and would lead to
different space usage. I have tried to split the label cell and allign the
text on the right cell to the right, but when i update the fields to copy to
every label, it leaves the right cell i just split, out of the label. Can
someone please help me with the issue. It would be greatly appreciated.

Set a right-aligned tab stop at the right cell margin and use Ctrl+Tab to go
to it.
