    Address Block Wrong Position in Merge(XP)

    I really do not like the new mail merge wizard! <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    There is one particular sticking point that I can't figure out:
    When using the mail merge wizard to do envelopes, when I lay out the envelope, I choose to use the Address Block. But no matter where the insertion point is on the sample envelope the address block always shows up on the left margin instead of in the envelope address frame. Anybody have a simple way of inserting the address block into the right area?

    Re: Address Block Wrong Position in Merge(XP)

    Hi Egghead:

    I think if you use the same approach that I suggested in <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=102118&page= 0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=0&vc=1#Post102118>this</A> post, you can make the change. The difference is that you go thru mail merge, with the main document type being "envelopes". Eventually, you get to the Envelopes & Labels dialog box. At that point, make your changes in the envelope options dialog box and they should change.

    Again, as I haven't used XP, please post back & let me know if this works.
