Yes I realized after the problems that I had with the data source that Base would be easier to use to create the data. However you must register the data. Mail merge seems to do this automatically. The reason I asked was whether I was doing something wrong.

I teach the OOo programs to seniors. Many want to do the same thing I am doing. However the process may be too much for many of them. Many, not all, want simple processes. Creating data in Base. Registering the data. Creating the envelope. Manually editing the layout to surpress lines. This is not easy.

Using Word made it easier for me to create the Writer process. Having used both, I see Word as being easier to do what I need to do. To be fair, this is the first instance that Word "seems" to be better than Writer.
