Delivery Point Bar Code Issues (2003)
I am having problems applying a delivery point bar code to my labels. I import the information from a spreadsheet and create labels using the mail merge tools. Once I finalize the labels I view them all and go to Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels. I check the delivery point bar code box and nothing happens. If I click "New Document" in the Envelopes and Labels box it creates a new document WITH the bar code (finally) but the addresses are all the same!
What can I do to create labels with the bar codes and still have every address be different?
