    I need to print addresses on envelopes from a database in Access '03. Labels
    will not do. It is possible to perform this function? Any helpful
    information is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Why will labels not do? Just build a custom label size that is equal to
    your envelope dimensions. I'm betting there already is one of the defaults
    that is the size you are looking for.

    Printing on an envelope is just another report.

    First you must determine if your report is going to print in Portrait
    or Landscape mode.
    If the envelope feeds into the printer narrow side first, it will be
    in Landscape.
    If flap side first, portrait.

    The below instructions are for Landscape.

    Make a new report.
    Place the Address controls at the left margin.
    Size the width of the report just a bit wider than the labels.

    Click File + PageSetUp + Page
    Set the Paper Size property to the size of the envelope.
    Since the envelope feeds in narrow side first, set the Page
    Orientation to Landscape.
    Then click on the Margins tab.
    Set the Left and Top margins to print the address at the proper place
    on the envelope.
    To print on a #10 business envelope, for example, I set the Top margin
    to 2.75" and the Left margin to 3" in Landscape.

    Print a sample.
    Readjust margin settings as needed

    For Portrait mode, follow the above instructions, but, of course,
    change the Page SetUp mode to Portrait, and adjust the margin settings
    accordingly.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
