First off .. every contributor must have an envelope number, that is because the number is the key that ties the Contributions database to the Personal Profiles.
Second ... you don't have
to have an envelope number, you can search on the name using the Magnifying Glass
icon next to the envelope number entry box. If you have Incremental Search
set under Preferences -> Contributions Setup -> Contribution Data Entry
you can start typing the last name and the system will search the database bringing up the last name in the list .. if you have more than one person with the last name, such as Jones, you'll at least be in the ballpark to find them.
