Problem with the "Display Map" Feature in ACT

(ACT Premium 10.01) I press the "Display Map" button for a contact (to get directions/ and a map) and google map, displays and error saying "improper state/province abbreviation" -----

The province in use is Ontario, I can easily get the map by changing province field to On    ..... But ACT offers a drop down list of provinces spelled out in full --- not abbreviated --- thus all my contacts have the full spelling of the province, and NONE will work with google map unless I change them all to ON  -----

 

Is there a way to change all of my Ontario provinces to On ---- in one single action --- Or do I have to do these manually ?????

 

All help is appreciated

Re: Problem with the "Display Map" Feature in ACT

I changed all my Ontario listed addresses to ON in one or two steps.  There is a field replace option.  Do a lookup on all Provinces that match Ontario.  Then from Contact List view you can do a REPLACE (Edit, Replace Field) on the Province field so that every contact in that lookup then gets "ON" as the data in that field.
