Thanks! Now let me see if I have this work-around right. First off let me state that I need to capture ALL of the fields displayed in the Address Advanced Fields grouping AND I need to display the inputs in the typical order that users would expect (Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip, Country) At this time, if I understand you correctly, I can't modify the Address Advanced Fields grouping to implement what I want to do with the States input, so I need to do something like this:
1) In the Address Advanced field grouping, hide country and state inputs so that only Address line 1, Address line 2 and city and zip code are displayed
2) Underneath the Address Advanced field grouping add a new State dropdown field and populate it using the Bulk Add technique you detailed above.
3) After the new States dropdown, add a new Country dropdown, with Canada and United States as the only two choices. The only reason I need to add this dropdown, rather than use the Country dropdown included in the Address Advanced field grouping is so that it will display in the order that most users are comfortable with (i.e. last).
(Yes I realize that in my proposed implementation, Zip code will precede State and Country. I think I can live with that. )
Hope that is clear.
