    I am in a somewhat baffling position. I am junior in college, studying computer science, and an acquaintance offered me a position helping her father with his fax routine. He has WinFax PRO 10.02 and is using Windows XP.

    He has been using WinFax to send out faxes, however, he wants to split his outgoing faxes into 4 timezones and distribute them at different times in the day. I suspect the best way to do this would be to use Microsoft Access DBs to facilitate the faxing. I am asking, in essence, if this is feasible, or if there is a better way to solve his problem.


    There are different ways to accomplish this, but the main issue is you have to somehow sort the fax numbers based on their location.

    This involves knowing which area codes belong where, example. 212 is New York, While 707 is California.

    WinFax doesn’t do this, and I am not aware of any software for faxing that can do this, but you can sort phonebooks in WinFax by the fax number.

    So if you have one large phonebook, you have to manually inspect check recipient and copy them into the new phonebook you want.

    so, you might have 5 different phonebooks that represent each timezone in North America.
    your master phonebook contains all the fax numbers, you manually copy each one to the appropriate phonebook.
