Following my earlier post which gave me answer in Portuguese, which I cannot read, I have progressed a little bit but am still stuck.

I have created a database Addresses.odb

It has five fields (Name, Address 1 to 4)

I want to print DL envelopes from this database to my HP Envy 8250 printer.

I cannot find a list of instructions that work for me.

I create new text document > insert > Envelopes and in the addessee box add the five fields I press New document when I get a preview of the envelope showing where the fields will print.

Where do I go from there Do I save as an odt file? having done that where do I go next. If I open that odt file how do I get my actual addresses to send to the printer?

Any help really appreciated

This is all done with the Mail Merge process. Complete instructions for both letters and envelopes are in the LO documentation found here -> LibreOffice Writer Guide. See Chapter 14 - Mail Merge.
