The AcornFTP program is used by NPD
to exchange data between your computer and (a) Acorn Data’s web site and (b)The
Washington Post’s web site. Data
exchange with the Washington Post is currently in pilot testing. Do not attempt these features until
instructed to do so by your zone manager.
This update adds the capability to (a) place your Export For Address
Check on Acorn Data’s web site; (b) Down load the latest version of NPD and
optionally install it for you; and (c) Upload a backup to Acorn Data’s web
site. The upload
of a backup is to be performed only when requested by Earl Merrill.
following modifications have been added since the last update of 3.47
- Support has been
added for processing of American Express’s Express Payment Software. NPD now supports both ICVerify and Ax
- Bill Now has been improved so it better guesses the Bill-Thru date
you will want.
- Carrier Mail now remembers when you select the Use Sub Carriers
- A NIE Donation Statement button has been added to the
Financial switchboard. Select the
date range, e.g. all of the year 2000 to print a statement for one or all
your customers. The statement is
designed to fit in the regular invoice envelope.
- The Export for Address Check now has three choices: Export
to Floppy, FTP to Acorn Data, and Email to Acorn Data. The FTP option was added for agents
whose email system is not compatible with Microsoft’s email
conventions. The current password
is earl, all in lower case.
Some of you will need to be already connected to the internet for
this to work. If you are using a
fire wall, be sure to allow AcornFTP to access the internet. Once you have uploaded the Address
Check, you need to notify Acorn Data by telephone, email, or by using the NPD
eStore to pay for it. If your email address is on file, the results
will be emailed to you. Otherwise, snail mail will be used.
- A Download NPD Update button has been added to NPD
Tools. The password for this
download is update, all in lower case. Be sure to check www.acorndata.com
to make sure the current download is newer than the one you are currently
- The Backup in NPD Tools now allows for uploading your backup to
Acorn Data’s web site. The
password is earl, all in lower case. This feature is for problem solving and must not be used
without prior approval.
Call or email if there are any
questions or problems.
