I've had a query about the two-letter state abbreviations which are commonly used in the U.S.A., including, of course, within ECN.

For the benefit of any other non-U.S. members who are not familiar with these abbreviations, here is a full list of the official codes:

AK Alaska
AL Alabama
AR Arkansas
AZ Arizona
CA California
CO Colorado
CT Connecticut
DE Delaware
FL Florida
GA Georgia
HI Hawaii
IA Iowa
ID Idaho
IL Illinois
IN Indiana
KS Kansas
KY Kentucky
LA Louisiana
MA Massachusetts
MD Maryland
ME Maine
MI Michigan
MN Minnesota
MO Missouri
MS Mississippi
MT Montana
NC North Carolina
ND North Dakota
NE Nebraska
NH New Hampshire
NJ New Jersey
NM New Mexico
NV Nevada
NY New York
OH Ohio
OK Oklahoma
OR Oregon
PA Pennsylvania
RI Rhode Island
SC South Carolina
SD South Dakota
TN Tennessee
TX Texas
UT Utah
VA Virginia
VT Vermont
WA Washington
WI Wisconsin
WV West Virginia
WY Wyoming

DC District of Columbia
(As in Washington, DC, not to be confused with the State of Washington.)

Paul,
Thank God there is no NZ, in that list, NY got pretty close, well that saved a heap of confusion world-wide, really. [Linked Image]
Thanks for this post, mate, I've often wondered what these terms mean. [Linked Image]
