Looking for State abbreviation to full spelling formula

OR my state abbreviation breaks Quickbase filters. Does anyone have a formula to share? 

 

  • .. and here is another one.  I forget offhand why I had to do the upper and lowercase thing but I think it had to do with inconsistent data entry when users typed in the state name and the capitalization was inconsistent.  But I see I did something different for the states which had two names.  I have a feeling I should have just use the two word name method for all the states.  

     

    var text StateRaw = Trim([Address: State/Region]);
    var text State = Upper(Left($StateRaw,1)) & Lower(NotLeft($StateRaw,1));

    If(
    $State="Alabama", "AL",
    $State="Alaska", "AK",
    $State="Arizona", "AZ",
    $State="Arkansas", "AR",
    $State="California", "CA",
    $State="Colorado", "CO",
    $State="Connecticut", "CT",
    $State="Delaware", "DE",
    Upper($State)="DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA", "DC",
    $State="Florida", "FL",
    $State="Georgia", "GA",
    $State="Hawaii", "HI",
    $State="Idaho", "ID",

    $State="Iowa", "IA",
    $State="Kansas", "KS",

    $State="Louisiana", "LA",
    $State="Maine", "ME",
    $State="Maryland", "MD",
    $State="Massachusetts", "MA",
    $State="Michigan", "MI",

    $State="Mississippi", "MS",
    $State="Missouri", "MO",
    $State="Montana", "MT",
    $State="Nebraska", "NE",
    $State="Nevada", "NV",
    Upper($State)="NEW HAMPSHIRE", "NH",
    Upper($State)="NEW JERSEY", "NJ",
    Upper($State)="NEW MEXICO", "NM",
    Upper($State)="NEW YORK", "NY",
    Upper($State)="NORTH CAROLINA", "NC",
    Upper($State)="NORTH DAKOTA", "ND",

    UPPER($State))

    You could also use the "Case" statement:

    var text stateAbbr = [State];
    Case(Upper($stateAbbr),
    "AL", "Alabama",
    "AK", "Alaska",
    "AZ", "Arizona",
    "AR", "Arkansas",
    "CA", "California",
    "CO", "Colorado",
    "CT", "Connecticut",
    "DE", "Delaware",
    "DC", "District of Columbia",
    "FL", "Florida",
    "GA", "Georgia",
    "HI", "Hawaii",
    "ID", "Idaho",
    "IL", "Illinois",
    "IN", "Indiana",
    "IA", "Iowa",
    "KS", "Kansas",
    "KY", "Kentucky",
    "LA", "Louisiana",
    "ME", "Maine",
    "MD", "Maryland",
    "MA", "Massachusetts",
