Printing Labels With Microsoft Word

The Data Source

You can use Microsoft Word (Word for short) to print the client names and addresses from RTG Bills on labels.

The first step, exporting the client information from RTG Bills, was described here.

Word can read the client names and addresses from the file created by RTG Bills. First, however, you should add a line with the field names to the file.

Start Word and open the file that contains the names and addresses, either address.txt or mail.txt. Insert this line at the top of the file:

number, name, address

Don't leave any blank lines before or after this line. Then save the document with the same name as before. Keep the original formatting (that is, do not allow Word to change the document to Word format). Exit Word.

Word can merge a form document with this text file to produce labels. We have detailed instructions for Word 2003. Other versions should be similar.
