Tip #1405 – Maximize the dynaMACS State/Region Zip Code Feature
dynaMACS has a powerful feature that automatically populates the State/Region field based on the Zip Code entered when adding or updating customer records (provided a valid 5 digit zip code is used). The use of the State/Region code is beneficial when generating reports in either Sales IQ or a Sales Analysis report. The following instructions show you how to activate this feature.
***IMPORTANT! PLEASE create a restore point before activating this feature and running the utilities!***
