I see an A6 and a C6 but I need to print on envelope size 6 3/4 (6.5" x 3.625" or 165.1mm x 92.1mm)?

Try this (from my experience printing Word envelopes):

File, Print, Click on Letter, More Paper Sizes and in the resulting Window that opens, select the size you want (width and length).  There is a Set as Default button, but I would hesitate to use this.

This is an OS dependent thing, but similar on XP and Win 7
Open devices and printers.
Highlight a printer with a left-click.
You are looking for Print Server properties.
When you have that open, there is a tab called Forms.
You are looking to create a new form with the correct dimensions

Hi, thanks, but the closest dialog box I have is attached as HP 8600 Printer Properties.  The list of paper sizes is attached as HP 8600 Paper List.  This printer acts as a "Web Services Printer" on our peer-to-peer network.  It is a robust business printer (at least when we purchased it several years ago).  We uses Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit OS.  I cannot find anywhere to add a paper size but the envelope size I need is in MS Word (see Envelope 634 in Word).  Any ideas?

Yes, thanks, I do have it in Windows 7 (see attached graphic).  And I have it in MS Word 2007.  How do I put the envelope in MS Access 2007?

This can be less fun that a guy would like.
Some print driver is offering the 6 3/4" envelope to your system, but your paper list from the HP8600 doesn't list it.
Only the sizes offered by a particular printer are seen in Page Setup dialogs.
See if you can discover what printer you could print the envelope from in Word, and try that printer in Access.

Can you actually print an envelope of this size from Word to the HP8600?
It ain't looking easy

So, you will be looking at creating a custom size as per the first image (go to the 6 3/4 entry and then save it as another name.) Then, it is time to see if that custom size  will display in page setup in Access.

From there, either you are good, or the fun REALLY starts.
If Access/PrinterDriver really hates your paper size it isn't necessarily impossible -- but it can be a bear.

Printing a 6 3/4 Envelope from Word works very well indeed.
I created a custom envelope but it does not show up in Access (even after I closed and reopened Access).

So I used a work around suggested in one of your links.  I selected "Card Envelope" and experimented with the margins until I found values that worked, see attached graphic.

So I guess I will buy a box of envelopes that are already listed in the Access, Reports, Page Setup list that fit into a #10.

Thanks

Glad it was relatively painless to get cased.
