How can I fit a long city name into a short address field?
Last updated 2 years ago

Sometimes you may need to use a long name when entering an address.  For example: "Garibaldi Highlands" which is 19 characters including the space.  Since the city field only allows 15 characters in the latest version of Samco Power Accounting you can use official Canada Post abbreviations to make sure long names fit.
For example:
FAIRMONT HOT SPRINGS FAIRMNT-HT-SP
GARIBALDI HIGHLANDS GARIBLDI-HGLD
GERMANSEN LANDING GERMANSEN-LDG
