Creating a new database with family members combined

Post by Dave » Tue Nov 07, 2006 3:22 pm

If you would like to combine family members into one record to save on postage and still list everyone on the piece you can use the following command.
For example:

Input records>
Dave Smith 100 Main St, Anywhere USA 99999-0000
Jane Smith 100 Main St, Anywhere USA 99999-0000
Jimmy Smith 100 Main St, Anywhere USA 99999-0000

New Database>
Dave,Jane & Jimmy Smith 100 Main St, Anywhere USA 99999-0000


Download the people command from our website.

Extract the "people.fxp" to the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 4.0 folder.
Extract the "Do People.txt" to the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 4.0\Commands folder.

Open the database that contains the records you would like to combine
From the command window (Edit>Command) select the Do People command.
Run the command, AccuZIP6 will ask you for a name and location for the new file.
Open the new file and you will have the combined records in the new file.
