Apart from ability of 8.5a US version to run under Windows XP, are there any differences from Generations Grand Suite 8 UK version? I seem to recall someone telling me that US versions only supported a 2 letter abbreviation for State names, c.f. UK version which allowed a 3 letter abbreviation. If so, are there also any other differences? Can anyone enlighten me before I purchase 8.5a? Thanks in anticipation. Donald Burke.
