My OS is windows 7 and I am using Access 2007 as the datasource.  Everything is fine on the Word Label that I created using the mail merge feature  which has the following fields :
First Name last name
City State Zip

My question is how do I create a bar code based on the Address1 and the next line containing City State Zip.

Hope a Guru can show me the steps. Thank u.

in response to yjchong514,  these are the steps I see:
Open Microsoft Word
Click Tools
Click Envelopes and Labels
Type the Delivery address if necessary for the Envelope or Label
Click the Options button
Check the box for "Delivery point barcode"
Click ok

But in Word 2007, there is no box " Delivery point barcode".  I tried adding a single address, and even then I do not see the box "Delivery point barcode".
and also as explained, I am doing a mail merge with Access datasource.  I am using Avery Label 5162.
Thank u

I have never seen that, either. It seem that it doesn't work for most places in the world (America only). Also it depends on the Office version (Professional Plus, or Enterprise),
