"The new, resolved place name "Campsie, New South Wales, Australia""

The place name "Campsie, New South Wales, Australia" is NOT RESOLVED

The place name "New South Wales, Australia" is resolved

but "Campsie, New South Wales, Australia" is NOT resolved. The reason it is not resolved is because FTM 2012 has no information about "Campsie, New South Wales, Australia" in its data base and therefore the system cannot resolve it

There is a diffrence between being correct and being resolved.

"Campsie, New South Wales, Australia" is probably a correct place but FTM 2012 has no information about it and can't resolve it so it leaves it unresolved

The way you can tell if a place has been resolved is to look at the [resolved/unresolved] symbol icon - if it has a checkmark it has been resolved. If it doesn't have a checkmark it has not been resolved by the system. And my interpretation is that there is no such resolution as "Partially resolved"

I have no idea what happens when the FTM 2012 data base is updated to show "Campsie, New South Wales, Australia" and hence users need to be cautious about developing workarounds. When they do update it what does the system do with the workaround that someone has used/developed
