I'm wondering if there is any setting in RM7 where I can set the defaults (or preferred format) for a country. I want to display USA rather than United States or United States of America (or U.S.A. for that matter) - likewise no United Kingdom but rather only England. Scotland, and Wales. I'm not concerned about officially official names for countries so prefer USA because it is shorter to type, and United Kingdom doesn't add any more information than England,Scotland, or Wales on their own.
I can't for the life of me find any settings for this and rip my hair out when Place Clean insists on replacing USA with United States. The actual Places Clean tool is so un-intuitive as to prompt grievous bodily harm. Take these selections offered:
Note: I would have included a snapshot image of the specific section of the Place Clean popup but I have wasted too much time trying to figure out how to do so on this Forum software that it is time for dinner and I give up ...
What the heck does "Do nothing" really mean in the context of Add or Remove? And what the bleep is "<brackets>"? I assume it is a variable but where do I provide the value I want to use for <brackets>? Obviously I would like to have <brackets>="United States" and Replace With = "USA". And do these two options work together? Does <brackets> = the value of Country in the Add/Remove/Do Nothing option? So would I actually set it up as Remove Country "United States" and Replace <brackets>:USA? I'm all for experimenting to see what happens but am asking before I inflict damage upon my database.
