I see what you mean by daunting -- MAN, they didn't even provide a base of valid postal codes or states! The maintenance program they provided puts the city names in upper case (ought to look really good next to mixed-case names and addresses). Trying to find the maintenance programs for all of the dependent fields has been no picnic either. I once wrote a package to track barges along the Mississippi and its tributaries that I thought was difficult. OLM makes the latter look like a piece of cake! I'd recommend asking SSA for a reference that's using the package, and ask the reference where they got all this data. Good Luck! Dean Asmussen Enterprise Systems Consulting, Inc.
