    Envelope bar code

    Hi. I'm trying to add the postal bar code to multiple envelopes in Word97. We're not using Word's envelope feature. Instead, our users are able to select several addresses from a document and create envelopes for each address.

    I'm currently using code that searches for "[space][space]^#^#^#^#^#", copying the 5 digit zip code, adding the field code and pasting the zip code into the formula. This is working, but it's not fool-proof. This will only work if the user has entered 2 spaces before the zip code, which is not always the case.

    Does anyone have any other ideas on how to search for the zip code in an address? I'd like to create the envelopes on the fly and creating a separate mail merge document may end up being too time-consuming.

    Thanks for your help. [img]/w3timages/icons/clown.gif[/img]
