Screen Layout

The Business Address Services provide various screen layouts that display the address elements and their sequence according to the country setting.  In each layout, the address fields are arranged differently to make the user's work easier since he or she can enter an address in a familiar environment.

The keys of the screen variants are similar to the formatting keys for print formatting.

The setting for the screen layout applies wherever a screen element of the BAS is used for address maintenance.

How the address data is saved in the database tables does not depend on the screen layout.

The following layout variants are provided:

·        001    Europe/Default

·        004    USA

·        005    Canada

·        013    Japan

Arrangement of Fields in Variant 001: Europe/Default

Street

House number

Postal code

City

Country

Region

Arrangement of Fields in Variant 004: USA

House number

Street

City

Region

Postal code

Country

In addition, the fields Time Zone and Tax Jurisdiction Code are always displayed on the first screen (and when entering an address).

Arrangement of Fields in Variant 005: Canada

The difference between variant 005 and variant 004 is that variant 005 uses the field label City/Region/Post Code whereas variant 004 uses City/State/ZipCode (logon language English). The screen layout is otherwise the same.

Arrangement of Fields in Variant 013: Japan

Variant 013 displays a completely different screen layout than the other variants. For more information, see Screen Template and Print Formatting for Japan.

If your system runs on SAP R/3 Release 4.6 or higher, you can choose between screen variants 001 and 004. Variants 005 and 013 are available as of SAP Web Application Server 6.40, and variant 013 is available as of SAP Web Application Server 6.20 SP 28.

We do not intend to deliver a separate screen variant for every country. Instead, we plan to offer multiple basic templates that can be used for countries that have a similar address format.
