    When trying to print mailing labels. I put all my addresses in the Microsoft works 2000 address book, I can not get word to use that address book. how do I get it to use it. you can contact me directly through yahoo messenger with this same ID. I do much better with one on one direction than to follow out written directions. Thank you very much.

    I don't think you're going to get that to happen, xray. Here's what I'd do:
    Try saving that address book as a CSV (comma-delimited) file. I don't know what format Works puts the files in, but Works isn't compatible with much of anything...

    Open the *database* and hit File-Save as. See what the different options are. Is CSV one of them?

    When I open up the address book, under file I have no save as option.

    The same problem was reported by alamal to whom I made the following reply -"I had the same problem after Windows 98. The Microsoft Tech people tell you that the Address feature does not function on current versions. If someone can tell me or alamal how to address an envelope from Works Address Book, I certainly will be grateful. I have spent endless hours ploughing through Microsoft Tips, Forums etc. etc. and still feel that it is not possible now as it used to be with '98 versions"
