My mother is trying to send out about 200 letters to 200 different addresses that she has stored as a group in Address Book. She needs a way to copy the address, and then paste it into a word document with the company logo and the correct envelope formatting. Is this best done in applescript? Is this something I can figure out easily on my own? Would I need to buy an "applescript for dummies" book, or could I figure it out with online tutorials, or is there a much easier/simpler solution? Thank you in advance for your help.
