Alternative Vendor Mailings
Shop-Pro prints mailing labels for vendors for small-scale mailings;
one-across and usually one at a time.
If you want to do a mass mailing you could export the vendor list to
a Microsoft Excel file or a Comma Separated Values (text) file and then complete the mailing from your word processor such as MS-Word.
From Shop-Pro choose File, Misc, Dot-Prompt.
At the blank screen type
USE VENDORS INDEX VEN_NAME
SET FILTER TO RECNO() > 1
COPY TO C:\VENDORS.TXT TYPE DELIM
COPY TO C:\VENDORS.XLS TYPE XLS
This creates two export files:
The first is called c:\vendors.xls and is an MS Excel file. You can read the first in MS Excel or may MS-Word
The second is called c:\vendors\txt and is a comma-delimited text file that you can read it in MS-Word or other programs.
