Outlook alternative for Printing Contacts for a day planner

This is the one thing I just haven't been able to find in Linux land. I've tried kontact, evolution, etc and none have really give the results I can use.

I use a half sheet (half 8.5x11) size day planner and use MS Outlook to print my contacts in two column format with custom field choices. I print double sided on 8.5x11 paper, cut the sheet in half and I have a nice, compact address book that fits in my DayRunner day planner.

Any ideas or suggestions ?

I'm going to look into openoffice database and use the label function. Looks a little complicated, but seems to be enough guides on how to do it.

Too bad really that the Linux apps can't do that as easy as Outlook, but I still get the feeling I missing someting out there. (So I'm still looking for suggestions!)


contacts, outlook
