    Would like to print a few fields from the Access DB for mailing, but print to envelopes and if possible include my return address on the envelope.
    Currently I print labels, then paste both the TO & From labels to the envelopes. This printing is about 600 envelopes.
    TIA,
    Carl,

    Hi Carl, and welcome to the lounge! Have you tried working through the mail merge wizard in Microsoft Word to accomplish this? Try working through the steps found in this article. If you have questions, let us know!

    It is also possible to create a report that prints on an envelope - then you don't have to get involved with the mail merge. And you will see the envelopes in the preview mode. However - printing envelopes is a tricky issue unless you have a printer designed to do exactly that. One of our clients has a dedicated envelope printer made by Xerox, and they print several thousand in a month. When I try to print more than a handful on my HP 3600 I typically have some issues with the envelopes creasing or occasionally not feeding as they should, and you can only load about 40 at a time... Bottom line - the mechanical problems may be the most difficult part.

    Thanks, this worked just great. Took a bit time to understand what was done, but got it done.
    Again thanks.
    Carl,
