Same Location appears multiple time in Places

Same Location appears multiple time in Places

I have Family Tree Maker 2011 cannot get the software to combine a place. It appears as identical entries 3 times in the Places tab. This one place seems to be the only one I have this problem with. It finds the place on the map, but I think at one point I had trouble with it finding it so I set up some preset coordinates and now they will not return to default. This is not a big deal just an annoyance. So if anyone knows what I might do that would be great, Thanks!

Either:

1) Resolve each of the three entries (right click > Resolve)

or

2) Select each of two of the three entries

Right click

Replace with Other Place Name

Look for leading or trailing spaces.
I have even found a few "double" spaces between city, state

Thanks to both of you, I managed to fix it and correct some other ones that it was not finding.
