You need to make sure it takes "de Havilland," and not just "Havilland."
Feb 7th, 2011 at 01:07 GMT
Recommend you split the ties into separate questions.
Feb 7th, 2011 at 01:08 GMT
You can only set it to accept the 2nd word, not the 2nd and 3rd word. If there was a way to do it, I'd make sure to set it that way, but as far as I know, there isn't.

It's pretty easy to set up alternate answers NJDevils
Feb 7th, 2011 at 16:15 GMT
@NJDevils2000 You can include alternate answers by separating them with slashes "/". So if your answer string was "Olivia de Havilland/de Havilland" and it's set to accept last word only, then it would accept "Havilland", "de Havilland", or "Olivia de Havilland"; the displayed answer is always the first.
