Just a note to tell you to add the subject line ruse to the manual when you're giving people hints on syntax and such. The computer is to dumb to realize the semi-colon is being used as a comma and lets the aka list slide through slicker than grease through a goose!

Yep - the comma character is used by the system to split localities into regions, it takes no notice of whether the comma is inside braces or not.

Semicolons are thebestway to solve this
