The Command

Copy this command, then paste it into the large text area of the command window:

replace all address with chrtran(strtran(UPPER(address),"PMB","PMB "),[~!@#$%^&*()_-+={}|\'<>,.?/],space(26)), address with STRTRAN(address," "," "), address with IIF(LEFT(UPPER(address),3)="PMB",ALLT(SUBSTR(address,AT(" ",STRTRAN(address," "," "),2)))+" "+LEFT(address,AT(" ",STRTRAN(address," "," &),2)),address), address with STRTRAN(address,"PMB PMB","PMB"), address with iif(right(allt(address),3)="PMB",left(address,len(allt(address))-4),address) FOR "PMB" $ UPPER(address)

After clicking RUN, the PMB and box number will move to the back of the address, with the street number and street name beginning the address. This properly formats the address for validation.
