Hi, my name isXXXXX have some suggestion to help you make the task of printing addresses easier using Word. Please let me know when you are ready to start?
I am ready
Great. Are you familiar with the term Mail Merge? What this involves, is basically merging a mailing list with a document that needs to be sent out the different people. The mail merge, lets you type the letter once and address it to everyone individually and automatically.
Let me give you an example. Open your Word document and then look for the Mailings tab section called Start Mail merge group, click Select Recipients
this is an example image...
Yes I am somewhat familiar with mail murge.. I don't wan
Actually, come to think of it you could also use the Step-by-step Mail merge wizard
You don't want?
Select Recipients where?
You don't see that option? Can you tell me what you see?
Are you the type of person that learns better by seeing?
If you want, I have a very good video that you can watch on how to do mail merge step by step. It is about 12 minutes long.
Some people prefer written instructions and others like to watch videos as they are visual learners... it's a personal preference really.
Do you see this box?
you said start mail merge thhen select recp.,
Ok, I don't think I explained it very well, sorry about that. Can you view this page: http://goo.gl/5jb3c4
This is going to accomplish the same thing I was trying to explain, but will be more straight forward to follow.
Only do steps 1 - 5 on this. Once you finish step 5 let me know and I will give you more details.
So you have a list then?
You are able to add the recipients to this list and keep saving it.
yes type a new list.
Great. Now let me recap to make sure we are both on the same page. Whenever you want to print new envelopes, you will be able to choose the recipients from this list. Add a couple names just for testing and save it.
Does that make sense so far?
yes so far
I am trying to find a way to explain this to you as there are many instructions but it doesn't take long, just many steps.

Sorry, try this: http://goo.gl/axqBkt
As you will see here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/word-help/mail-merge-with-envelopes-HA102919728.aspx?CTT=1 there are a lot of steps, but like I said, it does not take long to do them.
Print address seems to be return address
If you look at the long link I posted, see step 3 where you would put the delivery address and step 4 where the return address would go.
this is delivery box
this is return address box
Okay, I guess I will go to check out the web sight. I have my address in there. Thanks for for well thank anyway.
Wait, don't leave... I am just getting started.
