Business value

Typically, businesses use an external service that was built to validate address information in their country or region. When you need to update address information, the structured approach that these services use may not always be what's right for some scenarios. Therefore, Business Central now offers a more flexible means of entering address details.

Feature details

You can set the Require Country/Region Code in Address by selecting this field on the General Ledger Setup page. When this field is selected, because the address format is related to the selected Country/Region, changes to Country/Region Code field on addresses for customers, contacts, or vendors will reset the values in other address fields.
