If you would like to use an alternate Mailer ID on mailings that you’re not tracking with AccuTRACE, you can follow the steps below to setup AccuZIP6.


Pull down Edit>Command and create a new command. Name it IMB Non tracking or something that you’ll remember.
In the command statement syntax you will copy/paste the following.

Code: Select all

ON ERROR com_message=message()
alter table alias() add column imailerid_ c(9)
alter table alias() add column iservtype_ c(3)
alter table alias() add column irange_ c(8)
cValue=INPUTBOX("Please enter the 6 or 9 digit mailer ID that you would like to use for this mailing","Enter MID","")
replace all imailerid_ with transform(cValue)
cValue=INPUTBOX("Please enter service type code,  300 for First Class Presort or 702 for Standard Class Presort","Enter Service Type","")
replace all iservtype_ with transform(cValue)
replace all irange_ with allt(str(recno()))
Then go to the IMB setup area under the Additions>AccuTRACE>Intelligent Mail Setup and click on the + next to the First class option.
Modify the option to Use Mailer ID from field, type imailerid_
Modify the option to Use Service Type from field, type iservtype_
Modify the option to Use serial number from field, type irange_

Do the same for Standard Class
Click OK and you’re done.
Now when you are ready to presort, you can run that command from the Edit>Command window prior to the presort option and AccuZIP6 will use the mailer ID , service type and range that you entered instead of the AccuTRACE provided one.
NOTE: Make sure to uncheck the option to upload to AccuTRACE in the print settings screen.
