If printing is key, I'd pay a few bucks for a good app.
I need a simple database to keep names and addresses on so I can print out labels for Christmas cards etc any ideas folks?
Personally, I use MS Office with a mail merge to labels in MS Word, based on data in a MS Excel spreadsheet. But as a database teacher I must stress that Excel isn't a database. Older versions of Excel did use that word for a set of rows, but current versions don't use it any more (for the same set of rows).
But what's in a name. It works.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/word-mail-merge-a-walk-through-the-process-HA001034920.aspx is the instruction for Word 2003. It's somewhat different in Word 2007 and higher.
If you don't have MS Office, try LibreOffice.It's free.
