Where does the info come from?

Dennis, I noticed while doing a DXCC report that 3C0 lists as Pagalu (annobon Is.). Where is it getting this info from? This may sound like OCD level nit picky, but having a proper name in lower case is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. I wanted to fix it, but can't find the lower case entry in either the prefix table or the list of valid values.

Hi Doug:

It's coming from the Lists table. Everything there is upper-case, but the PROPER() function (proper as in proper name) in the report makes it mixed case. We do this to simplify searching and so that the text on the report takes up less space. The best of both worlds when it works.

I suggest changing the Lists table. Put spaces before and after Annoban Is. like this:
PAGALU ( ANNOBAN IS. )

Not perfect, but better I think. Or just remove (ANNOBAN IS.).

73,

DH
