The drop down/suggestion lists are NOT comprehensive. They are there as a help only.

Sometimes they can help you descipher a hard-to-read letter by using the wild cards, and sometimes they can save you typing a long name by selecting it from the list.

Just because a name is not in the list does not make it wrong. That is why the keying instructions always say: if it's not in the list, key as seen.

For example, in the New South Wales Government Gazettes there are quite a lot of legitimate locations which are not on the list and have to be F7'd every time, including would you believe, "New South Wales"!

Hope you get to "feel right" about the name before you submit it. I still think Bayls.

Cheers, Linda
