What is your question or comment?

Someone asked me to recommend a simple contact manager that is not Outlook. He wants to store contact information and print mailing labels. I want to introduce the person to OpenOffice. Is there a template for a contact manager. I searched everywhere I could think of. Building the application from scratch using the OO database would be to complicated. Any suggestions?

He can use OpenOffice in conjunction with a number of contact management software packages. Some examples of contact management software packages might be
Outlook (though this is not one you want, I know)
Outlook Express
an LDAP address data program

He just needs to set up an address data source pointing to the contact management software package. To do this, simply follow
File | Wizards | Address Data Source

Then his options are almost unlimited. For example,
File | New | Labels | ...
Tools | Mail Merge Wizard | ...
File | Send | ...
Insert | Fields | ... (This is how you can create your own template or customize what someone else created)
Insert | Envelope | ...

You can get OpenOffice templates from MANY sources. Here is one ... latepack_1
