Thx Wolfgang,

this makes sense, as I still had your old examples online and build my
letters after that I was just wondering if I did something wrong or missed
something in using it, but that way it is more flexible and with an

/input{addrfile}

in the below way one should also be able to still use a kind of the old way
having a separated addressfile but with a more flexible layout.

Again million thx for clearing it

Greetings
