Printing Address direct to envelope

    I have designed a report that prints addresses directly onto envelopes
    (narrow side first -Landscape). I want to be able to place a return address
    for unclaimed mail on the top left hand corner of the envelope. I imagine I
    would use a Label box, but where should I place it on the Report design?
    Thanks for any help

    Set the detail section height to 3 to 4 inches.
    Place the label with the return address at the left edge and top of
    the report detail section.
    Place the controls with the recipient's address about 4 inches to the
    right of the left edge and down about 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the top.
    You'll need to change the left and top margins as well.
    Print a sample and adjust the control locations and margins as needed.
    Remember, most modern printers have a minimum no-print zone, so be
    prepared to move the return address controls down a bit if necessary.

    In the top left hand of the Report (assuming that the report is laid
    out in the same shape as the envelope).

    Try it with plain paper first to avoid wasting envelopes.
