    Arrow Unanswered: Value lists

    I want to create a value list for states....lisitng alll the 50 states of America
    and I want the list to read like this:
    Alabama (AL)
    Alaska (AK)
    Arizona (AZ)
    .
    .
    .
    But after the choice of state is made...I want it to show only "AL" for Alabama as the state...saving a little bit of space...
    Can this be done???

    Wouldn't it just be easier to use the standard state abbrevation? That's the normal practice.
