I'm very new to ImportOmatic and RegEx. I want to import addresses that have been abbreviated, i.e. I need to set up a RegEx to change rd to Road and st to Street, etc. I was excited to see this topic and copied the Address abbreviations (Long) into my dictionary as instructed - but it does not work for me at all.
