If used as a Calculated Value this will Change what the user typed in to a standard format for all records. Some People type Road, well this can be hard to search if someone searches for RD.

That function looks good, but is incomplete. It is missing a closing parenthesis that is required in order for it to be a valid formula.

This breaks when the name of the Street is West, North, South, etc.

And, many towns will use different forms of numbers, such as First, and 1st for different streets.
