    with. You will need this information to complete some steps of 
    this set up. If you do not already have this information you will 
    need to go to the posting websites to sign up for a User ID and 
    Password.

    make sure that Posting Service Contact, Phone #1 & email address 
    has been completed on this screen for the individual.  This can be 
    set up for individual dispatchers or for all.

14. Select the Equipment Table button

    The left column is the Visual LOADPlus equipment table which
    is created from Administration.  It is not necessary to change
    anything in this column.

    The right column is the posting site's equipment table and must
    be setup to match the left column as closely as possible.  
    (Example:  VLP = Van-48' & Posting site = Vans)

    Once the equipment tables match, you must select the "Update    
    Equipment Table" option or your changes will not be saved.

    entry box and type in the equipment description then in the drop 
    down box to the right choose the equivalent equipment type.

    Note:  If the last equipment was entered in error, you can 
    select the "Delete Last Equipment Type" button to remove it.

17. Select the Main Menu button to exit that screen.

18. Move to the next posting site you are using. Type in your User ID
    and Password and click save. Continue through the steps of setting 
    up the Equipment Table and save.

    Note:  This is a one time setup process and must be completed
    for each posting site you will utilize. (This is when you will need
    to have all your User ID and Passwords for the posting sites you 
    will utilize.)
