Specify Envelope Contents (New Layout/Report assistant)

In this panel of the New Layout/Report assistant, you place the fields and text that you want to print on each envelope.

 

To

Do this

Place fields on the envelope

In Available fields, double-click each field you want, in the order you want them to appear.

To choose a field from another table, first choose the table from the list of tables, and then place the field. You can also create a new field or table by choosing Manage Database from the list of tables.

Move a field to a new line

In Envelope contents, click to place the insertion point before the field you want to move (before the angle bracket delimiters <<). Then press Enter or Return.

Place text or punctuation between fields

In Envelope contents, click where you want the text or punctuation, then type what you want.

Remove a field from the envelope

In Envelope contents, select the field name and the delimiters (<< and >>), then press Backspace or Delete.

Important  FileMaker Pro formats fields on an Envelope layout as merge fields. Merge fields are enclosed by double angle bracket delimiters (<< and >>). Make sure to select these brackets along with the field name if you move or delete a field name on the layout. Don't insert punctuation or other text inside the brackets unless it's part of the field name.

Notes 

You can’t enter or edit data using merge fields; use another layout for that purpose.
