How do you insert an address into a word document, not
the envelop, from an electronic address book like Outlook.

Add the Address Book Icon to your ToolBar

Check out Help system topic "Insert An Address from an
electronic address book"

For Additional information, open Visual Basic Editor under
Tools...Macro check out VBA Help for GetAddress information

So this indicates the ONLY way to get that address from Word is to insert it
into an envelope?  If you only want it in a document, not an envelope, then
you'd have to cut/paste from the envelope, true?

The other way I suppose for Outlook would be to merge it FROM Outlook into a
Word document, but you need to be in Outlook first.

Of course not - neither of them!
If the address book tool is not on the toolbar, you can add it,  Tools >
customize > commands > insert > address book.
This will insert an address from a MAPI compliant address book, such as the
Outlook Contacts list, at the cursor.
The format of the address may be altered with the AddressLayout autotext
entry. A typical autotext entry (from Outlook) might read (and you can paste
it and save it from here as they are not true fields:

{<PR_GIVEN_NAME> <PR_SURNAME>

Quote:
}{<PR_COMPANY_NAME>
}{<PR_POSTAL_ADDRESS>}

Ahhhh, OK.  The Help document you referred to only discussed getting the
address for an envelope.  I could not find "Address Book" icon to add it,
and when I looked at "All Commands" for it I gave up after scrolling for
quite a while.  Don't understand why those references for icons is not alpha
order!??

Way to go Graham! It really works with the exception you
have to actually drag the address book icon to the tool
bar, it's not autmatically added when you click on close.

One more question, when I insert an address from
the "Contact List" it adds at the bottom of each
address "United States of America." How can I remove this
from all the addresses?

Graham was assuming (obviously erroneously) that you knew how to use
Customize. For instructions on how to customize the address layout, see
"WD2000: How to Modify the Layout of an Address Book Entry [Q212345]" at
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q212/3/45.asp, which,
however, Graham has summarized for you below as follows:

The format of the address may be altered with the AddressLayout autotext
entry. A typical autotext entry (from Outlook) might read (and you can paste
it and save it from here as they are not true fields):

{<PR_GIVEN_NAME> <PR_SURNAME>

Quote:
}{<PR_COMPANY_NAME>
}{<PR_POSTAL_ADDRESS>}
