    It seems like it'd be quite useful, and I'd really take advantage of this program if it's possible.

    Thanks.

    I think you start with getting the address list in Entourage. Otherwise, you could certainly output a CSV file from Address Book and use that.

    If you just want labels you can print straight from Address Book. Why do you want to go through Word?

    As the the almighty yet slightly smelly mpw said, it's probably easier to go through Address Book. However, I got my data into Excel using Address Book Exporter. I imagine it'll work with Word too.

    In.Your.Face.Crab-boy, I beat you to posting an answer to a question and it was helpful. Slowing down a little are you?

    I had no idea this was even possible. This is very good news. What kind of label paper can be used? The standard Avery 5160?

    Hey hey hey mpw, I admit you're almighty and powerful and one day I want to grow up to be just like you. You are an amazing person.

    sportdan31, it kinda depends on your printer, but mine allows for standard Avery types. In the Printing Style, select Mailing Labels. :)

    Just tried it and all the usual suspects are in the template list throught the File>Print menus.

    ...and that is how signatures are made :D
