Thanks for the advice. I hadn't tried exporting a GEDCOM 4.0 file.
Everything came out fine when I did. BTW, I found this in the GEDCOM
5.5 specs:

"ADDR {ADDRESS}: = The contemporary place, usually required for postal
purposes, of an individual, a submitter of information, a repository, a
business, a school, or a company."

It looks like ADDR is supported in 5.5.

Thanks for the help,
Kathy Lenerz
