Note: Data for the ZIP Code areas of Wyoming on Disc 3 (sold before Sept. 20, 1993) are not accessible with the GO software although the data are present on the disc. The GO software on Disc 2 allows you to select Wyoming from the menu, but since the data are not on that disc, it returns the following message: "No data for this selection, press any key to continue." Currently, the only way to access the Wyoming data on Disc 3 is to use XBase software that can read dBase-formatted files or contact our Electronic Products Branch on 301-763-7710) and request a software "fix" for the GO software problem so that the Wyoming data can be read.
