Symptoms

When editing or creating a company record in Contact mode you may find that expanding the selection in the Counties field, a list of American states is displayed.

More Info

The list of states/counties is maintained in a data file called Counties.dat. This file is located, by default, in the C:OTalk folder on your OfficeTalk server (the computer you first installed OfficeTalk on).

This file is a text file which can be modified by an editor such as Notepad to suit your requirements.

Detail

To replace the list of American states with a list of English counties, please copy the list below and paste it into the Counties.dat file on your OfficeTalk server.

Note: You will need to restart OfficeTalk for these changes to take affect.
