The Command

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

Replace address with alltrim(str(val(left(address,at(" ",address)))))+substr(address,at(" ",address)) for left(address,1)="0"

After clicking RUN, the leading zeros in the address field will be stripped from the field, and the remainder of the address information will be left justified. Your addresses will now be ready for validation.
