    Mailing Labels from Address Book? (2000)

    People,

    I have to send out form letters to about 50 contractors on my community's vendor list.

    First, I created the form letter in Word (2000.)

    Then, I opened Address Book, created a sub-folder under Main Identity's Contacts; & entered in Company names & addresses as new contacts for every contractor.

    Now...all I want to do is create mailing labels for all the various companies.

    How in the heck is this done?

    I started down the mail merge path, but got extremely lost.

    Thanks,

    Mail merge would be the way to go. What did you try, and at what point did you get lost?

    HansV...

    1) Opened the form letter (Word .doc) to be sent out to all contractor contacts.
    2) Tools > Mail Merge > Mail Merge Helper
    3) 1-Main Document > Create > Mailing Labels > New Main Document (went the other way first, but it deleted the contents of my form letter
    4) 2-Data Source > Get Data > Use Address Book > Outlook Address Book > "Contractors" Folder (good so far)
    5) Header Record Delimiters > Field Delimiter: (Tab), Record Delimiter: (enter)

    BAM !!! Word could not merge the main document w/ the data source because the data records were empty or no data records matched your query options.

    ???

    Unless someone else replies, it'll have to wait until tomorrow for me to try it out in Word 2000. I'm using Word 2002 at the moment and mail merge works differently there (and it merges with a contacts folder without problems).

    Alternatively, you could copy (or export) the contractor list into a Word table or Excel worksheet and use that as data source for the merge, instead of an Outlook folder.
