This is a sample of records from the SHIPPER database used by the WAYBILL program. The actual database includes more than 4000 records based on prototype shipping information. These records are selected in order to create realistic waybill origins and destinations.  Quaker Valley Software hopes to make additional data available to our customers as they add their own data to this body of knowledge.
 

The Shipper database can be edited using a windows like interface as shown below:

You can explore the database, using the report query feature.  As shown here, we have selected the shippers from Pennsylvania and West Virginia, a subset of 219 of the 4000+ records in the file.

Here is the last page of the resulting report.  This is previewed to the screen, but can be sent to the printer if desired.  A complete hard copy of the file can can be printed if desired, but get a ream of paper; it will take about 150 pages!  It is easy to add query selections from all of the other fields in the database.  There are 45 records for "corn" shippers for example.  If you would like to transfer this data to a file for further analysis, this option is built into the report writer too.
