Hi I was wanting to update one of my poi's by adding a 4th line that will contain the Address, City, State and Zip.
I'm not sure if it should drop to a second line or not.
Is this the correct format?
"516 North College Street; Charlotte, NC 28202"
"516 NORTH COLLEGE ST. CHARLOTTE NC 28202"
Thats how I was entering them
Will that make it show up like this.
I'd like City, State and Zip to break to a second line.
1411 South Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28203
It did on mine
My 330 didn't like the ; so I'd keep it out.
The new Beta, is the best at getting the lines just right.
Thats one feature that really works good on it.
I did find one problem that I'll have to get with JM on.
Sounds good then....
If you found a method that works, I'm going to
use it... I have a 340 so if you had issues with
the ; then I know I will too. thanks for the help.....
If you're using Notepad or WordPad, you can enclose the field data in quotation marks and then use the enter key to insert a line break at the appropriate spot.

FYI: The POI database module does this automatically. If you're starting a new file from scratch, I can set you up with a POI type using the beta version of this new tool.
Unfortunately this is a file that I have been working on
and adding to. I uploaded it to the POI Factory not to long ago. I was going to add the Address, City, State, and Zip to the file. I made the file using Excel (.csv) and Excel seems to do pretty well.
With Excel, will I have to hit enter to go to a second line or just put " " to break lines?
This is what I would like it to do
I'm pretty sure you can press ALT-ENTER to insert a new line while typing data into a cell.
Also, Excel automatically adds quotation marks when you save as CSV, so don't enter them yourself!
