Hello,

I'm trying to generate a csv or similar of all contacts
(name, company, address) I currently have in XRMS. I
want to do a snail mail mailout, so need the
contacts/addresses in a format I can use to generate
labels.

The only export I found didn't seem able ot export the
address (just name/company and some other info) while
the 'mail merge' option seems only for email. I saw
mention somewhere of a 'snail mail merge' but I can't
find that anywhere.

Any tips on how to achieve what i'm trying to do?

Thanks,

Vesty.

    The current development snapshot has a 'Snail Mail Merge'
    button that should show up on most/all Contact data pagers.
    This will do exactly what you want on any Contact list.

    Also, all versions of XRMS have an export called "Export
    Company/Contact" under 'Administration' which exports the
    business address associated with each contact.

    Regards,

    - Brian
