Address Book Ability to Print Address Labels

      This article describes a method in which address book
items can be printed in the form of address labels. The user has the
ability to specify what fields will be printed on the mailing label.

      In OS/2* Office, a user is able to print entries in the address
book.  To print address book entries, a user selects the items to be
printed and performs a print action on those items.  A print action
consists of either "dragging" and "dropping" on the printer icon or
selecting the "Print" pull-down option from the "File" action-bar
item.

      A "Print Labels" option will reside on the "File" pulldown. A
user will select the entries in the address book that need to be
printed and then will select the "Print Labels" option. A dialog
panel will appear with controls that will give the user the ability
to choose what information is printed on the labels. For example, a
user can choose what fields are to be printed and in what order.

      This invention allows users to print address book entries in
the form of mailing labels.
