Jeanette has proven that she has done everything possible through her
vendor which, then, as we all know, casts the gauntlet down squarely at
the feet of those who handle the addressing and the mailing for the
publishers. So that puts us back at square one, which is Dealing With
Those Who Generate Address Labels for various publishers, and it seems
that sometimes from that square we don't get to pass GO, or collect $200,
or - more importantly - our journals!

***While I agree with everything Peter says, I do need to add this has
definitely been done in my case.

***The first year it happened I notified my vendor rep several times, and
she assured me and reassured me that the renewals were going out with the
full address.  She finally gathered (correctly) that I was thinking she was
mistaken, that Vendor People Unknown To Her were handling my renewals and
supplying incomplete addressing.  We then had a long conversation about How
Things Are Done, and I was convinced that it was not the vendor's doing.  I
remain convinced of that.

***It seems to be of the same category as the problem of renewals being
entered as new subscriptions, thereby supplying us with dups of the first
issues, and a subscription end date some time before the end of the renewal

***I suppose it could be I have a masochistic vendor/rep who just loves
correcting addresses for me, and tracing down missing issues & lapsed
subscriptions, but I rather doubt it.
