printing envelopes

  Asked By: Ricardo    Date: Aug 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 998

Now I want to make a list of mailing addresses that I can put on Sharepoint

and use to print on single envelopes as

opposed to printing an entire sheet of labels every time I need to send one
letter in the old traditional fashion.

Does anyone have an efficient and simple solution?

I'm trying to think out the best way, I.E. document library with publisher

Excel spreadsheet, word docs, or custom address list or what?

It needs to be easy to edit, fast and simple to print.

Anyone who has come up with an effective method please do share.

You can automate about 90% of this (assuming you will always be doing the
printing from the same client), using the following:

Initial setup:

1) Setup a WSS list  with the address  information
2) Setup a datasource on the client machine against that WSS list
3) Use Word to create a mail merge that uses the datasource for the address

When you want to print:

1) Open the mail merge doc
2) Choose what you want to print  (can be 1, all, or a range)
