Convert Long to Short U.S.A. Location Names
...is a STANDARD LTOOL which generates short 2-part location names from long 4-part location names that end in "USA" or "U.S.A.".
Because there is no user interface to speak of, this LTool appears under the Misc Tools main menu item.
To generate short 2-part location names from long 4-part location names that end in "USA" or "U.S.A.":
- Back up your Legacy database.
- Open your Legacy database in _LTools_.
- Select Misc Tools on the main menu, then select Convert Long to Short U.S.A. Location Names on the sub-menu.
- For every long location name in your database (tblLR) that consists of 4 parts (_city_, _county_, _state_, _country_) ending in "USA" or "U.S.A.", _LTools_ will generate a short location name consisting of 2 parts (_city_, _state_). If _city_ is blank, _LTools_ will generate a 1-part name (_state_). If _state_ is blank, _LTools_ will generate a 1-part name (_city_). A 4-part long location name of ", , , USA" or ", , , U.S.A." will get a short location name of just "USA" or "U.S.A.".
