' returns a bi-dimensional array organized in this way
'         res(n, 0) holds the state's name
'         res(n, 1) holds the state's abbreviation
' the array is sorted on states' names
'
' Example: load the states' names and abbreviations in a combobox
'          Dim st() As String, i As Integer
