Description:Applet consists of two databases, Fuel Tracker & Gas Stations (DBPopup). The applet allows the user to record basic information for each fill up including Date of Sale (automatic entry), Sale (cost of fuel), Price/Gallon and current Odometer Reading. The applet then computes and displays Gallons Pumpted, MPG, Miles/Dollar (of fuel), Total Sales to Date, Avg. Sales to Date, Avg. Price/Gallon, Avg. MPG and Avg. Miles/$. The Gas Station database is accessed through a DBPopup field in Fuel Tracker. It contains basic information about the gas station you bought fuel from, including station Name, Location & Phone number. You don't have to enter detail information about your gas stations. Just the name is sufficient. However, this popup database is ideal for distinguishing between franchise stations & is also convenient if you need to call the station. To begin using Fuel Tracker, fill up your tank & create a record containing only your current odometer reading. The next time you fill up your tank, you will enter the Station, Sale, Price/Gallon & your current Odometer reading, and the applet computes & displays the statistical data when you open the saved record for display. Fuel Tracker always highlights the last record saved as a convenience. Aside from tracking useful statistics about your car's fuel performance, you can also use it to track where fuel you purchased was the cheapest.

11/10/2010 Yellow Pages [Business Tools]
Applet consists of Yellow Pages, Business Contacts and Departments databases linked to one another. Yellow Pages extends the usual phone application that comes with your cellphone by allowing you to record the contact phone numbers of departments within individual business locations of a major business. For example, you can easily store the Vision Center phone number for several Wal-Mart stores in your area, like you would find in your Yellow Pages. You can't do that with your cellphone's phone application. To use the applet, you first open the Yellow Pages database and enter the Business Name, Category (from popup list, enter new or edit the popup for retrieval later on), Website Homepage and Phone. Separate views for Business Listing and Category Lising are available. Clicking on Phones opens the Business Contacts database where you enter the business location(s) and phone number for each location. Selecting Department opens the Departments database where you enter the Department and phone number for that department. Some example data is provided to show how useful this applet will be. With the Yellow Pages applet, you won't need to carry the Yellow Pages phone book with you ever again.
