NNEREN list of towns?

asked 2016-11-18 20:25:40 -0600

Is there a way to find out what the NNEREN official town names are? when I do (L_City='North Conway') I don't get anything. Is there not supposed to be a space? How can I find out what the official RETS NNEREN values are? thanks.

NEREN uses the Lookup called “City” to store all city values.

In the previous system there were two fields, Town/City and Official Town. NEREN decided to remove the second field “Official Town” which contained some commonly-named values and not true city names. Users may refer to the lookup “City” to retrieve a complete list of valid city names. The current city lookup contains an option called “Conway”. The legacy field “Official Town” contained a value called “North Conway” but it was discontinued when the legacy field was dropped.

I recommend reaching out to NEREN directly for any additional details.

what you are looking for is in field LM_Char25_22 this is the "locale" and it provides the village name and sub names. so it you look at the metadata lookup for it you will see the long name is village/Dist/Locale the lookup field is VillDistLoc_Lkp_1 north conway is listed

I have checked with nneren and i have looked in my database and the full name is there, the meta browser truncated the field. disregard the comments below

EDIT but since the filed is limited ot 25 charaters it is cut off an says north conwa there are a lot of messed up town names in there. you would think this would be a priority as it how most will search for all listings in north conway which is very different than conway. i am sending an email to the rets team at nnere and i advise yo do the same and contact your clilent to have them sent it also. the field is ok

First, let me say Thank You for your knowledge and timely responses! I added LM_Char25_22 to the pull fields, and now can get "North Conway". Still having issue with "Hales Location", "Harts Location". How would I pull those listings?
