mail labels from MySQL database

mail labels from MySQL database

Post by RobertBo » Tue, 20 Jan 2009 06:53:50


I created a site for a friend that collects names and addresses into a MySQL
database. My friend has not asked yet, but I think it's the next step for him.
That is, I am sure he will want to be able to print mailing labels from the
names in the database. Is there an easy way to do that? Is there an extension
(free or paid) that can make this easier than hand coding?

One way would be to create a page that creates an XML list, he can then
run the page that creates the XML, then import that into Word or Excel
to do whatever he wants.

I think there is an extension in the ADDT that does this, and there is
also an article somewhere on Adobe.com that shows you how to do this.
