I have a database. So, sometimes user need to print A4 letter with some fields inside (no problem).

At certain time, they want to print using envelope to print the addresses. tHEY don't want to use the labels but instead wanting to use the envelope.

How do to envelope printing. The measurement is 4.5" * 9.5". Am I suppose to use the label wizard to do this also?. And how to change the cm or mm to inch measurement?

Please tell me how to :
a. print using envelope at certain time from MS-Access. Most of the time they will be using A4 size paper using the laserjet printer.
b. how to print using envelope (4.5" * 9.5" size). Do i have to add the same printer another time and custom size the paper size.

Thank you experts..
hope to hear from you soon.

pandav,

 It's rather simple: just treat the envlope as a "regular report".  Don't need to worry about paper size or anything.  Just start off with a blank report, locate the return/address info in the upper left corner.  Then set portrait or landscape as need be to send the envelope through the way you need to.

That's it!

Note for the "report", you may want to set the printer to "manual feed" as well.
