Usage:

To generate short 2-part location names from long 4-part location names that end in "USA" or "U.S.A.":

  1. Back up your Legacy database.
  2. Open your Legacy database in _LTools_.
  3. Select Misc Tools on the main menu, then select Convert Long to Short U.S.A. Location Names on the sub-menu.
  4. 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.".
