PostalAddress Property

P: n/a
Has anyone ever used the PostalAddress property of a textbox in Access 2003
and later? It seems like a pretty useful feature. But the online help about
it is scant; it refers to a PostalAddress Wizard that doesn't seem to exist;
and groups archive and websites seem to not even mention it -- all of which
leads me to believe that it's not used. Has anyone ever used it?

Weird, Neil

The A2003 Help file indicates that the PostalAddress property is a string
value, and applies to a Textbox or Field. It seems to consist of 2 or 3
parts, separated by semicolons.

Under:
Language-Specific Properties and Methods
the help file also lists PostalAddress under this comment:
... only available if support for Japanese, Simplified Chinese,
Traditional Chinese, or Korean is enabled through Microsoft Office
Language Settings.

That may be why it is not listed in the actual properties of a field or text
box for most of us.

That really is weird. Why would one need japanese to get a postal code??

I couldn't get it to come up in Help. So I was going by MSDN
(http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...fice.10).aspx). Didn't
mention anything about the language thing.

Also interesting is that it says on that page, "The postal code converter
program has been developed and licensed by Advanced Giken Corporation for
Microsoft Corporation." Yet a Google search of "Advanced Giken Corporation"
yields no results (except for this page with the reference to them).

More MS weirdness.

Thanks,

Neil
