I've dutifully searched for this in the Bus. Apps. forum, but can't find anything on it. Have a very simple question: How can you print addresses to envelopes using an envelope feeder on your printer DIRECTLY FROM ACCESS 2000 (i.e., instead of printing labels)?

The absence of anything on this in the MSKB makes me thing Access can't do that, but I want to confirm it. If it can't do it directly, can you export something like a label report to Word and do it from there?

This thread suggests it can be done directly from access, but it doesn't sound easy and is probably simpler to do using word and access as the database

I will give that a try, since it's apparently not possible directly from Access. Thanks for the link.

It's very easy to print envelopes from Access. Highlight the query or table that you want the addresses to be printed from. Then go up to the toolbar click on Tools then choose Office links and choose merge with Word. You can also do it the opposite by going to Word and doing a Mail merge. Good luck.
