Labels Fields / Word 2000 - Outlook 2000

By rrdt ·
I need to know if there is any way to customize wich fields Word 2000 gets from Outlook 2000 Contacts when I select tools -envelopes and labels and click on address button, because by default word gets only the postal address fields and nothing can be changed.
The Contacts are stored in the Exchange 5.5 Mailbox.

Thanks

Labels Fields / Word 2000 - Outlook 2000

Hello.

What you need to do is create a Mail Merge file (document) instead of using the Envelopes tool. You can then use your address book (Contacts) as the data source. This will allow you to select whatever fields you want as well as apply spcific formatting to them.

It does not matter that the Contacts are stored in Exchange.

This Method didn?t help me, because :

-we do this a lot of times each day and it requires many steps to complete.
-The Mail merge document works with a full page of labels and we need to print labels one by one.
-the mail merge document lost its relation with the contacts folder when you save the doc. and then re-open it.

I do not agree with your response to the first answer posted about using mail merge.

If you select Tools-Envelopes and Labels and then select Add to document. You will not lose the mail merge connection or the envelope outline. You could setup a document to use when you want to do an envelope, then find the appropriate record and print just that record. You then have control over what fields to add to the envelope and do not have to set up the mail merge every time you want to use it.

Don :

The method you recomend works, but only with envelopes, because the Add to document option only shows up in envelopes but not in labels. I need to print labels.
