Hi all, yesterday I did a search/replace for the world 'county' in place names so as to show ' city, county name, state' and now I don't know what to do with the extra spaces of commas after the county name and before the state name. It looks like this: "natchez, adams , ms" . What to do?
Thanks all
Don n TN

Using the same search/replace facility, select place names, then:

search for "space, comma" (natchez, adams , ms)

replace with "comma" (natchez, adams, ms)

I hope you're using proper capitalization rules. (Natchez, Adams, MS)
