Addressing Envelopes/Address book..

Welcome beginner. What is your question or comment?
Please try to briefly and clearly tell us: What you want, What you tried, and What happened.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I have XP & Ubuntuon partions.With the XP I use Microsoft Works for word processing,I can access the address book both to check information or directly address an envelope.With Open Office on the Ubuntu part I am completely lost.Th only address book I can find is on Thunderbird and although this is shown on the list of Data bases when I use "insert envelope",I do not know what I should do to either view the contents or insert an address into the blank envelope.What am I not doing correctly.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

Be prepared - it's quite different inthe OOo world. I recommend you take a look through these links for mail merge and labels etc:

Here's a long page of all kinds of useful stuff to do with labels: Labels Tutorials

Thanks Gurkha, I have checked out your suggestions,but it seems that perhaps Open Office is meant for more sophisticated users than someone just wanting to address the odd single envelope useing an on-line address book. I will have to try and see if there is a simpler word processing programme available in Ubuntu or just type my addresses individually...
