Since January 1995, over 79 different area codes have changed representing over 31,200 different prefixes. And, over 40 NEW area code changes are scheduled for the next two years. 

The area code wizard software helps to provide (at a high cost to the average user, however) your software with updated area codes so that you're always up to date! The software automatically locates changes in area codes and prefixes and updates them in your databases like those seen in ACT!, WinFAX/PRO, and Microsoft Outlook. All of this is done using less than a meg of hard disk space! I must say that this is very unique software. 

I've seen my share or area code databases, instant lookups, and directories, but I have to say that I' ve never seen a product quite like this one that actually updates databases for you, adding efficiency to your workplace at a small cost to a business. Installing and running the software is a simple matter of click and play. The trial version allows you to get a strong feel for how the software runs and what to expect from it. 

If you find it useful, you might want to consider purchasing the full version, after all that's what shareware is intended for.
