    How do I save just the envelopes that I address to various companies using Word 97? I could use the "add to document" option, however I did not type any saved document with Word that the envelope can be added to. I just use the application to exclusively address envelopes, not compose any letter, etc.. I could always save addressed envelopes in MS Works without including any letter document.

    Likely, you'll be better off if you begin to create yourself a data source. Follow the mail merge helper to do so. Make your main document an envelope. Once you have it all set up, all you need to do is hit the <abc> button on the mail merge toolbar, hit the record buttons to go to the address you want, and hit print.

    Let me know if you don't understand. It's horribly simple, and you'll only need to have TWO files, instead of one file for each person's name/address/envelope. I could very easily load up files you can use...

    Ok, if I use the data source method and now I want to find my envelope that is addressed to the "IRS" for example; how do I find it? I open Word97, it shows me a blank document...now what do I specifically do next? What and where exactly is the "abc" button and the "mail merge toolbar"? I'm lost. :confused:

    Okay. So, using the mail merge helper, you made a data source file, and added several addresses to it, one being the IRS. Now, it's another day, and you need an envelope for the IRS. You open the mail merge document you created (an envelope). This should automatically connect you to the mail merge data source file (nothing more than another Word file that contains a table with your headings in the first row, and data records in subsequent rows). Your mail merge toolbar should auto-appear. If it has not, go to View-toolbars and click it. If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll just create you sample files and tell you how to use them.
