And no list member is expected to give a response that could be
interpreted as CRA*, or B*, DR*V*L. Such answers are such a waste of
time that that are worse that SPAM. The preceding was written after I
scraped the top of my head off the ceiling. From a wise-ass newbe maybe
but not from a respected longterm list member

Some of us have a reasonable expectation of what software can and should
do, and then to find out years later that the authors standards are so
undefined that we as a user are never told of them. I just spend five
minutes looking at the sample data base and did not see any Address
tags. They might be there, but I do not know how to find them. There are
some residence ones but they are not duplicated for husband and wife.

If a husband has an address the chances are, in most circumstances, that
the wife will also live there and it would probably not be stretching
the truth to assume that and enter it as a fact.
