I am used to MS Word reading the zip code of the addressee and automatically printing the correct postal bar code above the address on an envelope. Does Writer do this? How?

No, as far as I know Writer (still) can't do PostNet bar codes.

At least, the OOo 2.0.3 I use can't do it. If you're using OOo 2.1 and you can't do it, then it's still not implemented.

There are a few threads on this topic in the message base, happy searching. Smile

FWIW, I use Word97 for all my mailing applications (labels, bulk letters, etc.) because I use PostNet bar codes in all my sending address applications. IMHO, until Writer implements this feature, MSWord is the Tool Of Choice for such things...
