Default How do I print a recipient list from a mail merge list in Word?

One way to do it is to create a "Directory merge" (Catalog merge) in Word,
use your recipient list as the data source for the merge, and create a
one-row table with as many fields as you want to print from your list, then
put one field in each column. Don't add any other text or blank space. Do
the merge, and if you need column headings, add a row to the top of the
resulting table. Typically, you will probably need to use a landscape
document.

NB, if your recipient lists were created in Word 2002/2003 and are in .mdb
format (these are known as "Office Address Lists" in Word), and you have
Access, do not be tempted to open the .mdb files in Access and list
recipients from there - if you do, Word will no longer recognise the lists
as being Office Address Lists.
