NPD Update 3.42 (01/24/00)

About This Update

The following modifications have been added since the last update of 01/14/00:


  1. The extra day of vacation credit has been corrected. This fix is the main reason this update is being released so soon after the last one.
  2. The Carrier Mail now has an option to only print carriers with mail.
  3. Carrier Mail now remembers your selection for Generate 2nd Notices.
  4. The Draw Notes are now printed on Carrier Mail.


For Your Information

  1. Get your NPD Updates On-line. Now NPD updates are posted on our web page for downloading. The plan is to post the update just after the master update diskettes are sent off for reproduction. (It takes about three days to get the copies back, a day to stuff them into mailers, and a day or two for the post office to deliver them to you.) Downloading can get you the update almost a week earlier than waiting for the diskettes. If you would like to sign up for this, send an email to NODISKS@ACORNDATA.COM. Be sure to include your name in the message body, as sometimes I cant figure it out from your email address.
  2. Windows 3.1 and 3.11 It has become difficult to continue to support Windows 3.x. The PC used for 3.x support had a hard drive crash. Since it was a 33Mhz 486, it was discarded instead of repaired. If you continue to need Windows 3.x support, please contact me. These update diskettes will not work on a Windows 3.x PC.
  3. Windows 2000 NPD should work well under Windows 2000.

To install this update from floppies
