Can I download a standard list of state abbreviations?

I hope I don't have to type in every single state and every country we do business with!

The US Post Office has a list of official postal abbreviations on their web site. I found states and abbreviations at the following site.

http://www.usps.com/ncsc/lookups/usps_abbreviations.html#states

Highlight the entire list of states with their abbreviations, copy, and then paste the list into Excel.

Once in Excel, save as a tab delimited text file. The resulting file can then be opened/imported into FileMaker.

You will find a number of other helpful lists on the same web page.

(I attempted to copy and past the list into Word and Notepad but was not successful. The states and abbreviations were placed into the same field.)

Good luck.
