I have a client who has all of his customers info in outlook contacts. He would like to take this info, say just the address, and use it to fill in a pre printed form on a dot matrix printer. He needs to be able to select several different contacts and print them all at once. I'm looking for sugestions on the best process to use. Thanks in advance.

you can use VBA to export to either word or excel into custom templates, then print from there or create a custom form in outlook to do the same,.
here is something that may help

Exporting to a txt file and performing a merge would mostly likely work the best. I don't reallt want to duplicate the data into an access db. He uses outlook and all the data is already in there. I will test this out of a few days. Thanks for the direction......
