Awful lot and not really necessary I would have thought. We do the same,
delete all place names before importing a file.

Many moons ago a customer asked for a print and when his mother showed up as
being born in Peru we thought something was amiss.

He was Australian and had entered his mother as being born in Per short for
Perth but GB assumed that it was Peru, Bill did correct this but there may
be others that have not been discovered.

Best Wishes.
