Automation Overview


ZIP Express is a Windows based software utility allowing easy look up of U.S. ZIP Code and their associated cities, states, counties, area codes, time zones and current time. ZIP Express' power goes well beyond this by providing the capability to actually read a ZIP Code from your application (or clipboard) and pasting information back directly into your program (or clipboard) in just about any format that you desire.
 
ZIP Express allows you to automatically paste ZIP Code information directly into your Windows applications via hot keys. Over 80 hot keys may be assigned commands. For example, press the CTRL+SHIFT+J keys while in your word processor and watch a ZIP Code entry box appear. Type in your ZIP Code and suddenly the city, state and ZIP Code are typed right into your word processor where the cursor resides. Or set up another hot key to scan the ZIP Code in your address data base and watch the cursor back up 3 fields and type in the city, state and county.
