    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.

    this can definitely be done easily with AppleScript. if you want to learn yourself download this free ebook. it's the best AppleScript book out there for beginners. http://www.applescriptsourcebook.com/tips/AS4AS.html

    if you want to cheat then simply post this question to the forum at macscripter.net and someone there will come up with a script for you.
