      I tried an MS Word mail merge solution too. Clumsier than the MS Access solution, but good for teams that don't have Access.

      If someone has a good MS Word solution, how about putting it online and informing us? I'm sure many will be grateful.

      Nobody has shown an Excel-only solution for printing index cards yet. Is it impossible? I thought Excel could do everything including frying my eggs :o)

      I've done the same thing for internal use. It's a bit clumsy, but it
      works when one knows how to use it.
