Thanks for that. I have found the project instructions to be very misleading. This is about my fourth project, and the mantra has always been ' key as seen' regardless of obvious spelling errors or anything else!
The place names in this project have confused the hell out of me, what is a postal abbreviation? I don't live in the states, so I do not have a clue what is what. In the case of Charlestown, S.C., I have been keying Charlestown, S C as they also say to put the space in, and yes, take out the punctuation. I can only hope that with all the keying I have done on this project that my stats don't fall down a very steep incline, but if they do it is not because I have not been very careful with my keying!
I try to think that with every entry that I type, that somewhere down the track when the project goes live, that one person is going to be very happy to find that entry, so I also try to instil a bit of common sense with some very confusing entries and instructions!!
Here's to common sense keying.....off soap box now...
