Searches – Criss+Cross Plus CD-ROM

When I open up Criss+Cross Plus, I do not have a CD to choose from to begin my search. Why isn’t my CD showing up?
You may have tried to open the program with out the CD in the CD-ROM drive. Click on cancel, click on tools, click on options, and change the last drive to the drive letter of your CD-ROM drive.

 

Hint: Your CD-ROM drive will have a picture of a miniature CD in front of it.

When I try doing an address search, I can’t pull anybody up. Why?
Some addresses are abbreviated or they might have a different spelling. We strongly recommend the use of the Street Table. This can be accomplished by just typing part of the street name and by clicking on the Ellipsis button located on the right of the Address field.

 

On the Street table, you can select the desired street by matching the City and Zip Code associated with the street and by clicking on the OK button. At that time you can add the house number and click on OK to begin your search.

When I am using Criss+Cross Plus to look up an address, I can’t do multiple searches; I lost my first search when I clicked on the mailbox to do the next search.
You can click on the CD icon located underneath the word “file” to open another window and start the search for your next address. Insure that the desired addresses are highlighted prior to opening the next window. Alternately, click the mailbox and make sure you check the box that says “Display results in a new window.”

 

Hint: Limit your searches to 10 or 15 windows at a time. remember to print or export from all windows to make sure you print or export all information that you have looked up.

When I do a search, the information that comes up on my screen was close to what I was looking for, but it does not match what I have typed in.
You may have to use the scroll bar to view the information that you were looking for or there wasn’t an exact match.

 

Hint: Select display matching listings only.

I can’t do a radius search because the word ‘radius’ is grayed out. Why?
You must first highlight the record you would like to use for the radius search.
How do I highlight all the records from my search in Criss+Cross Plus?
Right-Click on a record and a drop-down menu will appear. From the menu select SELECT ALL. The records will then be highlighted.

 

Hint: Only 3500 records can be exported at one time. If you are going to print 30,000 records, it will take about 1000 pages.

How do I add records to a DO NOT CALL list in Criss+Cross Plus?
After completing a search, highlight the records that you want to add to a DO NOT CALL list, then go to the menu bar and select EDIT/ADD TO DO-NOT CALL AND MAIL LIST.
