    Hi, I've created a form for a catalog request on my website. I have the address field and I set it up to have the state as a dropdown. The company that I send my list to for mailing my catalog needs to have the 2 letter state abbreviation instead of the name. 

    Is there any way to set that up? I used to have a different form on my website and the state box was just a text field, I had instructions and examples for people but they still entered it incorrectly all the time and I would have to fix it manually so I was really looking forward to being able to have it as a dropdown. 


    Thanks for your help

    I checked your form and I see that you are using the Address field. However, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience, for there is no option to change the State Options of the address field within the form builder page.

    Since you are embedding your form on a website, I would suggest you try to embed the form using its Full Source Code — How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form and update the value of each state options.
