On the additional helps page you've got an answer to a question that could be possibly wrong. &nbsp;Indexers should be using the lookup list to determine the FULL name of the place. &nbsp;If they actually used the lookup list '''properly '''they would have discovered that by entering "Ch" into the first field of the lookup and "town" into the 3rd field of the lookup there's only ONE place that comes up and that's Charlottetown. &nbsp;They should be expanding the abbreviated name if they can determine what it is not just be told that "yes that's what you enter". &nbsp;--[[User:Aprilrobertson|ARobertson]] 20:46, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

On the additional helps page you've got an answer to a question that could be possibly wrong.  Indexers should be using the lookup list to determine the FULL name of the place.  If they actually used the lookup list properly they would have discovered that by entering "Ch" into the first field of the lookup and "town" into the 3rd field of the lookup there's only ONE place that comes up and that's Charlottetown.  They should be expanding the abbreviated name if they can determine what it is not just be told that "yes that's what you enter".  --ARobertson 20:46, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
