    Printing multiple envelopes (Word 2002 on PC)

    I can't figure out how to print multiple envelope copies with Word 2002 on a Dell PC running Windows 2000 Pro. I can use the envelope formatting "wizard," but I see no option to tell my printer how many copies of the same thing to print. I don't even see how to save the one envelope I've created. All this works easily on my Mac G4 with Office 2001 for Mac. It allows me to save the text file, configured for an envelope, and print as many copies as I want. What am I missing on the Dell with Word 2002? Thanks!

    Gosh Jim -
    When I sent you here I really thought you would get a response! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> I guess that my work around about not using the wizard and using normal page set-up to the size of your envelopes and text boxes is the way to go.

    It actually is not too complicated when you think about it. You could create a document template for different size envelopes with your return address in an appropriately placed text box and a blank text box for the address. To add a delivery point barcode just use the field command as the first line of the address text box.

    By using it this way you can add a logo or fancy lettering (or a clipart bicycle helmet <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) or the like to your return address. You can not do that with the wizard

    I think what you are looking for is under Tools->Letters and Mailings->Envelopes and Labels.

    Type in addresses and then instead of printing, choose Add to Document. From there, you can print multiple copies and save the setup if you would like.

    Thanks! That sounds like it might work. I must confess it's a LOT easier on a Mac using Offiuce 2001 for Mac! I'll try your suggestion this weekend. I don't have time right now, and someone else is using my Dell laptop anyway!

    No worries, Wing Commander Your Highness Kathie! Good idea! I think for myself I'll just use Office 2001 for Mac! But my father-in-law has a Dell PC with Word and I couldn't help him print multiple copies of envelopes. I think I can figure it out now. Thanks to both of you who responded!

    Thanks!
