Combine multiple record information into one record

NOTE:

In the command you will see the line:
*>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Replace all ALLID_ with allt(fieldname)
*>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Change (fieldname) to reflect the name of the field that contains the codes you'll be combining into one field. For instance, if you're going to be removing duplicates and combining information that's in an ID field into one field, the command would read:
Replace all ALLID_ with allt(id)

......
1. Download and extract the file to your C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 4.0\Commands folder.
2. Open your database.
3. Run the duplicate search (Make sure you select the option to “BACKUP DUPLICATES” at the bottom of the duplicate window”
4. After the duplicate search finds the duplicate records, updated the database by clicking the diskette in the upper left of the window.
5. Click OK and now you should have your duplicate records marked in grey.
6. Run the command “Merge Information From Dup Records” from the Edit>Command window
7. The command will create new fields at the end of the record.
*AllID_ will be the combined information
*Dupkey will containg the match code
*Priority will contain “P” for Priority and “S” for the secondary information
*Groupct will contain the count for that duplicate.

ID____First_______Address____City_____ST__ZIP
