Add Periodicals Zone Information to Database

The following technote shows you how to add a zone field to your presort file, which will allow you to see Periodicals zone information after you export your data.

  1. Pull down the File menu to Open Database.
  2. Browse to the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0\iPresort\Templates folder, then open the presortout.dbf file.
  3. Pull down the Edit menu to Fields, then create a field named zone. Make it a character type field, with a width of 3.
  4. Close the presortout.dbf.
  5. Open the database that you'd like to presort.
  6. Presort the file, and in the Print Presort window, click on the Print Labels button.
  7. In Print Settings, click on the Output pull down menu and choose Disk File. Click Continue.
  8. Click on the Export All Fields box, or choose the fields that you'd like to export. If you're manually selecting fields, make sure you select the Zone field.
  9. Choose an export format from the Export Format pull down menu (choose AccuZIP6 5.x Database if you'll be opening this output file in AccuZIP6), then click Export.
  10. Give the file a name and decide where you want to save it, then click Save.

This output file that you've exported is your database in presort order, with zone information in the file.

I wanted to take a minute to write accolades for your employee Eric Lambeth. I have been calling on Eric for training and help in the Accuzip software since May and I want you to know that from a client standpoint, he is second to none! Eric has gone way above and beyond in helping me learn and navigate your software as well as helping us through some crazy situations we have encountered. It is clearly evident that he knows this software inside and out. It is also evident that Eric loves the customer and is willing to do whatever it takes to help – he has even answered emails and called me on the weekend to help through some stuff I was unsure of! I cannot express enough how wonderful Eric has been for our organization. I will tell you that I came to this organization with a background in BCC software with plans to transition to BCC software. Eric’s knowledge, guidance, training, and willingness to help at all hours of the day/week has sold me on Accuzip! Your software solution is more user friendly and the support staff far exceeds BCC! I am also looking forward to investigating your other software solutions.
