    USA No more (Word 2000 )

    I have posted this question on the OUTLOOK forum, too, so if the Word enthusiasts think it will be sufficiently covered on that forum, you can skip this. However, for those of you with goodness in your heart that like to solve puzzles involving macroes, here is a good one.

    Although I'm sure there are easier ways to do this (and I am always open to instruction), I use MS Office 2000 Outlook contacts as an address book and Word 2000 for my editing processor. After using a startup macro and template to create a shell letter format, I open the contacts file and, using the 'insert addresses' button, pull down an addressee. The addressee that comes over from the Contacts file contains the usual name, address, and city-state-zipcode but then a final line, "United States of America." I can erase such information using an additional macro, but that is cumbersome. I am as patriotic as anyone on this forum <img src=/S/flags/USA.gif border=0 alt=USA width=30 height=18><img src=/S/flags/USA.gif border=0 alt=USA width=30 height=18> but Is there a simple way of eliminating that USA from flowing over from the Contact list onto the address line itself? (I'm wondering why the programmers didn't just say, "Redmon, WA" in the programming but I guess MS doesn't have a flag nor have they a seat in the UN -- yet.)

    If this issue has come up before on this forum, a cite to the thread would not only be helpful it allows you to inform me quickly. Semper Fi!! Thanks.

    Basically, you need to edit the Hidden AutoText entry called AddressLayout. It's a real pain. I

    Many threads on the hidden AddressLayout AutoText definition for inserting addresses into Word. I don't believe that Country is a default field; any idea if your AddressLayout definition was customized intentionally to include it? Another possibility: Outlook considers it to be in another field, in which case, you might need to do some data clean-up on the Outlook side.
