4.5. Adding Return Addresses to the Database / Program

Instructions to properly add Return Addresses to the Envelope database.

From the main screen of the program, just click on Options 
then Return Address Options.  Or, just press F4.

This will display the Return Address Database screen.

To Add a record on the Return Address Options screen, you can click on the "+" plus sign
displayed near the bottom of the screen.

To Delete a record on this screen, you can click on the "-' minus
sign displayed near the bottom of the screen.

The other icons are used to navigate through the database if you
do not want to use the grid slide bar.

When you are done on this screen, you can click on the "Close"
button to select the selected record to be placed on the main
screen to be used for printing an envelope.

Here is a list of the field names that are displayed along with a short 
description of those fields.

Address Grid: This grid displays all the records in the database.  It 
is displayed alphabetically.

Address Name: This field is only used to sort the record in the 
Return Address Grid.  We use this so we can place records in an 
order that makes sense to us.  Such as - Work, Home, Default, Etc.

Return Address: This is the actual Return Mailing address that 
will be sent to the envelope.  It contains the Name, Address, City, 
State, Zip, ect.  You can use up to 5 lines for the address field.

Default Values: These are selections that are used with the selected 
Return Address to tell the system what it needs to know while 
creating envelopes.

Print Return Address: This tells the program to print the return 
address on the envelope if checked.

Print "Attn" in front of Attn: field:  This tells the program to 
automatically print the text: Attn: in front of the field located on 
the lower left part of the envelope, known as the Attention field.

Print POSTNET Barcode: This tells the program to print a POSTNET 
barcode above the address on the envelope.  This is used to speed 
up the processing of mail in the United States only.

Print/Display Logo Image: This tells the program to print a logo on 
the envelope if you have loaded one into the program.

Print FIM-A Mark: This tells the program to print a FIM-A barcode 
on the envelope in the upper right hand corner to help speed up 
the processing of mail, only used in the United States.

LOGO: You can load a logo that will print on the envelope next to 
the return address field.  This needs to be a .bmp (bitmap) type 
file.  To load one you can either have it as a file on your system, 
or loaded into your clipboard.  Just right click on the logo field for 
options.  This should be small, such as 50x50 pixels.  The program 
does not auto size it so be careful on sizing.
