Tech Tip #1
Need to backup your trip ticket files? If your computer does not have an internal CD-RW drive (ability to burn CDs), consider buying an external drive. Some examples are:

1) a flash (thumb) drive for $10 - $90
2) an external USB portable hard drive for $50 - $200
3) an external USB DVD / CD drive (DVD RW / CD RW) for $60 - $150

All of these drives are plug and play. Just plug the device into one of the USB ports on your computer and in nearly all cases, your computer will recognize the new hardware and be able to use it immediately. However, it's still a good idea to read the instructions and install any software that came with the device before plugging it into your computer.

The file to backup is:
C:\Program Files\ Trip Ticket\ TripTick.mdb

Tech Tip # 2
If you are ready to enter another trip ticket, you need not leave the ticket screen. Instead, hold down the Ctrl button and hit the N key. This is a hot key sequence that can also be accessed from the ticket screen menu.

Tech Tip # 3
A faster way to print a trip ticket is to hold down the Ctrl button and press the P key while on the New Ticket screen. This is a hot-key sequence used to print one ticket without having to select from the menu.

Tech Tip # 4
A quick way to backspace the fields on the data entry screen is to hold down the Shift key and press the tab key.
