Last month I wrote about a new feature of CUT Light that allows your report to calculate the distance between two points based on zip codes or lat./log. coordinates. The one challenge I found was that the conversion of zip codes to long./lat. relied on a web query and therefore had a daily quota limit. But since then Millet Software has added a local conversion table which allows you to bypass the web query. This makes it much faster and removes the limit. The included data is as of the 2010 census and is limited to 5 digit zip codes, but for most applications it is probably still a better option than the web query.
You can read this page for a more complete list of what CUT Light can do.(For examples of my most popular formulas, please visit the FORMULAS page on my website.)
