<u</u>
 
 
'''<u>If and OLNY IF</u> '''the nationality is abbreviated '''<u>AND</u>''' the abbreviation can be expanded as '''<u>EITHER</u>''' a nationality or place name, than we type the <u>'''NATIONALITY'''</u>.&nbsp;
 
 
 
US <u>'''is not'''</u> an abbr for American, therefore we type United States.
 
  
GB or GrB <u>'''is not'''</u> an abbr for British, therfore we type Great Britain.

Looks like we finally got some help from FSI, thanks
  
N S&nbsp;or Nov Scot '''<u>is not</u>''' an abbr for Canadian, therefore we type Nova Scotia.
 
  
Ire '''<u>is not</u>''' an abbr for Irish, therefor we type Ireland
 
  
Ger, Fr, Can, Ir '''<u>can be</u>''' abbreviations&nbsp;'''<u>as either</u>''' Germany, France, Canada &amp; Ireland <u>'''OR'''</u> German, French, Canadian &amp; Irish.....in these cases ('''<u>and others like them</u>''') we would type the '''<u>NATIONALITY</u>'''.
 
  
If it <u>'''is not'''</u> abbr, '''<u>TPYE&nbsp;WHAT&nbsp;YOU&nbsp;SEE</u>'''. If it is a place-name don't change it to nationality.
 
  
If you can't determine what an abbr stands for than use the look up list for help or type what you see excluding punctuations.
 
  
Hope this helps, I have spoken with Support a few times in this matter to get clarification, and re clarification, and this is the info I have collect from them.
