How To Set Up the Address Format in Dynamics NAV

Have you ever been in a situation where a customer wants their address printed in a specific way on their sales invoice?

While it might be a simple concept, it’s critical to execute this process correctly. So, let me walk you through a few very simple steps in Microsoft Dynamics NAV that can have a significant impact on the way the address formats on customer sales invoices are printed.

In Dynamics NAV, the Countries/Regions page is where you can easily set up the different address formats per country code and control the format of addresses.

When you create a new country code in Dynamics NAV the “City + Zip Code” address format is automatically displayed as a default format.

If you do not end up changing this and just accept the default value, all the Country Code address formats will look like this:

That likely won’t serve you well.

Under the address format field, there are different address formats available in the Countries/Region page:

While the address format “City+State+Zip Code” is commonly used in Canada and the USA, there are a multitude of options to choose from.

Once this process is setup correctly, you’ll be able to be flexible around the way customer sales invoices are printed.

Now for a general note on the changes made on the address format. Remember that, the changes will take effect only to the future sales transactions and not on the posted sales invoices.
