Paul - Once you have this figured out, perhaps you could post a small
tutorial for those of us boneheads who struggle with places! I know that
the mechanics of how this entire place hierarchy works -- and in particular
how you created the example shown in your post -- would be appreciated by
many of us. CheriC

Subject: [GENBOX] Places - Almost there!
Hello Genbox Community,
I am evaluating Genbox and am particularly attracted to the handling of
places through linking, creating a single unique single record for each
place division. This is a feature I have long desired. Although the
mechanics of making the links can be frustrating at times, I'm catching on
and have created such sophisticated variations as a town that has had three
names, which is located in a township that has belonged to two counties in
one state!! ;-)
Thought I was doing really well until I got to the Local Site level, using
addresses. Either I don't grasp this at all, or the feature is still under
development. Address fields don't stick or show in output. If a street
address is entered in the Name of a Local Site, the street number is
considered as a leading modifier and suppresses "at" in sentence output.
What is the "definitive" method of entering place data at this level?
