Aweber Segmentation

So I'm just going to call this post what it is... it's kind of boring! BUT if you find yourself stuck this week, just like I did, then you will appreciate its content nonetheless.  :)

I wanted to segment one of my Aweber lists so that I could send an email just to my subscribers in Texas, so I went into the Manage Subscribers page, which looks like this:

Once I had my list open, I clicked on the "Select Field" button and chose "Region (from IP)", and I typed in "Texas".  Now I know that I have subscribers from Texas; I've seen it on the notification emails I get from Aweber when a new lead signs up.  However, when I did my search, these are the results I got:

So I thought maybe region didn't really correspond to state, and I tried switching the field to "City" and typed in things like "Dallas" and "Houston."  It still didn't find any subscribers who matched the search!

I spent a little while on this, trying different searches, and nothing worked.  At that point I figured I was really wasting my time, so I sent a quick message to support, and they got me straightened out.

Are you ready for the solution?

Ta-da!

The secret is to use the state abbreviation of "TX" instead of typing out "Texas".  That's it!  I now have a segmented list of people who live in Texas, and I can send them a special email about an upcoming live event in Texas (and the rest of my list won't be annoyed by irrelevant information!).
