I need to make study cards (flash cards) using Word 2000 with the question on one side and the response on the other. I think I can do this by using the “Envelopes and Labels” option under the “Tools” menu, but I’m not sure if this is the best and/or only way?

I’ll have to make in excess of 100 cards (most likely 3 X 5...I haven’t bought the card stock yet). Is there an automated way to do this? Do I just make one file with all of the questions and another with all of the answers and then print the first file, reload the cards and print the second file on the opposite side?

I’m really a novice at Word so any help would be greatly appreciated. If there are any tutorials on line that you know of, feel free to point me to one of those.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe you could use a Word (table) document as the basis for a mailmerge. The table could have 2 columns, column1 = questions, column2 = answers. So you'd merge first using the first column and run the cards thru the printer, then again using the second column and run the cards thru other-side-up.

There's a default index card size (4 x 6 in.) via File -- Page Setup. Mailmerge in 2000 is far more straightforward than in later versions, IIRC -- see http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/index.htm for details.

Thanks for the reply bomb #21.

I'll do a little reading and see if I can get it figured out.
