Get a fully formatted address without the need to rewrite the calculation every time you have to concatenate street address information. This takes into account missing values, etc.

There is a much easier way to accomplish this...
Ignoring all of the Proper and Trim stuff, try this...

List (
Substitute (List (City; State); "ΒΆ"; ", ");

If you want Address_1 and Address_2 on the same line, put in the same code as the City and State fields use. Much easier to account for missing entries as the List function ignores them.
