I have a form containing Name and Address info on clients.
How do I write an action on a button that will print those fields on an envelope on an HP4 laser?
Please be specific. I am not terribly proficient but I'll work hard to learn.

It is all dependent upon your printer setting.

Select the printer and go to page property (different printer has different layouts of property pages). There will be an option for envelope feed . Set it and print it from notes.

Ok, that gets the printer ready.
How about the action.
What button code will select the fields I want, orient them and send them to the printer?

Create one more form with required fields in it (say envelope), then create an action button to print with this formula in the original form

@Command([FilePrint] ; numCopies ; fromPage ; toPage ; ifDraft ; ifView ; formName ; breakType ; ifReset; startDate; endDate)

Lookout for the formName parameter, Substitute with "Envelope"

Look out in help for more explanation on all other parameters.
