Advanced Presort Settings: ADVANCEDSETTINGS.INI

Post by Eric » Wed Feb 25, 2009 12:30 pm

In C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0\iPresort\INI Defaults\Advancedsettings.ini you can add some presort settings that cannot be selected in the Presort Setup window. Below are the settings. Keep in mind that if you add multiple PIECEINFO settings, add them all under the [PIECEINFO] section. The same rule applies to each section.


*To create 3 digit pallets instead of skipping 3 digit pallets and making SCF pallets:

[MISC]
3DG PALLET=1

*To turn off 3 digit pallet creation:

[MISC]
3DG PALLET=0

*To set a maximum number of pieces per bundle:

[PIECE INFO]
MAXBUNDLESIZE=

For MAXBUNDLESIZE, you can either use a numeric value for pieces (for example, MAXBUNDLESIZE=50 would create 50 piece bundles), or a value with a quote to indicate thickness of the bundle (so MAXBUNDLESIZE=4" would create 4 inch bundles, rather than 6 inch bundles by default).

*To set the maximum number of trays on a pallet:

[PALLET SIZE]
MIN TRAY=1
MAX TRAY=

If you are trying to make a pallet to put all your mail on, even though you may have a mailing that doesn't meet a minimum quantity to go onto a pallet, or if you have leftover trays that are not going on an existing pallet, you can make a loose pallet by following these instructions:

[PALLETS]
LOOSE PALLET=1

Close the file, then click Yes to save the changes.

Presort your list again, and your mail should be able to go on one pallet.


*To set a minimum number of pieces in a Firm Bundle:

[PIECE INFO]
FIRMBUNDLESIZE=6

*Firm Bundle settings to help determine which records should be part of a firm bundle:

[PIECE INFO]
FB COMPANY=
FB FIELD=

Note: The ADDRESS field is ALWAYS used when determining if a group of records should create a FIRM package.

FB COMPANY=
0= Do not use the Company field when creating FIRM packages
1= Uses Company field when creating FIRM Packages

FB FIELD=org
Replace "org" with another field name that you would like to use in "addition" to the ADDRESS and/or Company name for creating FIRM packages.

You can use any combination of FB COMPANY= and FB FIELD=. For example, you could set FB COMPANY=0 and FB FIELD=MyCustomField, or FB COMPANY=1 and FB FIELD= or FB COMPANY=0 and FB FIELD=MyCustomField.

*If you want to make it so the EZ Forms don't print without having to delete the EZ Form files, follow these instructions:

[STATEMENTS]
EZFORMOFF=1

To ignore minimum requirements for pounds or linear feet on a pallet and to put loose pieces staying at your local entry on a pallet, add this:

[PALLET SIZE]
MIXEDCONTAINERONPALLET=1


[DROP SHIPMENTS]
SCFDROPMIN=200
BMCDROPMIN=200
SCFENTRYMIN=1
BMCENTRYMIN=200
PERDDUDROPMIN=6
ENTSCF=1

**To set the "default" weight of each container for the following types, add these settings:
*Note: Only use this setting for this specific purpose: If you want to factor in the sack (or pallet) weight (multiplied by the number of containers in the drop) into the Gross Weight of each drop on the 8125 reports.
[CONTAINERS]
Pallets=
1' MM Trays Only=
2' MM Trays Only
EMM Trays=
Flat Trays=
Sacks (White)=
Sacks (Green)=
Sacks (Brown)=
Sacks (Orange)=

Example:
[CONTAINERS]
Pallets=45

To automatically increment your Statement Sequence Number from job to job, you can enter the information below. This will allow Manifest Mailers to create unique statement IDs without having to manually keep track of their statement numbers:

[STATEMENT]
AUTO STATEMENT SEQ NO=1
