>> Should be lots of inexpensive options available for contacts and label
printing. <<

Larry, I've looked at several. Each had some stupid problem. None have the
simplicity, ease of use, and user-interface the original dBase and the old
PC-FILE had.

It is not that difficult. And it REALLY depends on which version you use.

MS keeps changing things significantly from one version to the next.

But for simple things, it works quite well.

And the book you want, is the Dummies book for the proper version.

I never put important data in a spreadsheet, use a database instead.

Access 2016, and probably earlier versions as well, has an included contacts template.
(Of course, if you have Access 2016 you probably also have Outlook 2016 and will just use your Outlook Contacts)

It depends.

I don't use Outlook on my personal machines.

You may also be keeping more than one set of contacts. Personal and some group.

Outlook supports multiple .pst files open at once. Each file can have its own set of contacts.

Ward,

If you haven't got your file to print let me know by PM and I will get you through the printing of your file.

My apologies for not stepping in earlier.

We can do it in the forum if you prefer.

the other bill

I know about multiple .pst files, I did not know you could keep separate contact lists for each.

I will have to look into that.

I get a chance. <g>
