If the motion is allowed, the change shall be made to the county where the action or suit ought to have been commenced, if it is for the cause mentioned in ORS 14.110 (When place of trial may be changed) (1)(a), and in other cases to the most convenient county where the cause assigned as the reason for the change does not exist.
