You're right, Address tags are part of the Address Tag Group while
Residence tags are part of the Other Tag Group. TMG will not allow
switching tag label in different Tag Groups. However, you can use John
Cardinal's TMG Utility to make the switch. If you don't have his program
you may go to the TMG Tips web site (URL below) and link from there to his
web site to download the program. Be sure to use the "Log only" option
first to make sure that any changes are what you want. Also be sure to
make a backup before you do anything in case you want to go back to what
Hope this helps -
