Access has a built in feature to create mailing labels easily. It is called the Label Wizard because this wizard requires key strokes, we will go through it in a SlideShow rather than a Simulation.

Mailing label reports

Mailing labels (shown in Figure 5.6) are also a type of report. Access includes a Label Wizard to help you create this type of report. The Label Wizard enables you to select from a long list of label styles. Access accurately creates a report design based on the label style you select. You can then open the report in Design mode and customize it as needed.
