Windows 7: Trouble merging envelopes directly to printer in Word 2010

Trouble merging envelopes directly to printer in Word 2010

I'm running Word 2010 on Win7 x64. I've merged addresses in an Excel workbook to an envelope document using the standard mail merge wizard. I'd like to print these 10 at a time since that's all I can fit in my printer's feed tray. I click on Finish & Merge and then Print Documents and enter the range to print. Regardless of the starting record I enter, it always starts printing from the first record. I'm using an HP CP2025 Color LaserJet. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

  • When everything looks good, you can click on the Finish & Merge dropdown to print your envelopes.
  • In the Merge to Printer dialog, I would suggest starting with just the current record to make sure that you have the envelope positioned correctly.

    Tip: Cut plain paper the size of the envelope and add marking to show the positioning, then use it for a few trial runs.
  • When things are printing as expected, you may want to print sets of say 10 envelopes at a time based on your printer using the From __ To: __ choice in the merge to printer dialog.
I hope that helps. :)
