Configure Address Field

The Address field has some unique property settings. To configure an Address field:

Access the field's Properties page in one of the following ways:

  • If you're in a form, right-click the field or field label and select Edit the field properties for this field

  • If you're in a report, click on a column heading menu (), then select Field properties.

  • From the table containing the field you want to change, click SETTINGS on the Page bar. Click Fields, then click the field name to access its Properties page.

  • From the fields list, click the field name to access its Properties page.

Basics

In Label, enter a title for the Address field, e.g., Billing Address.

In Type, Address should appear.

To require a complete address for each record, select Required.

Address field options

In the Format dropdown, select whether the Address field is restricted to United States or International.

If you have selected United States, the option below it will become the States selection menu. You can select specific states to restrict the states that may be entered. All states are available by default. You can restore to the default by clicking Reset States.

If you have selected International, the option below it will become the Countries selection menu. Here, you can enter the countries to which you wish to restrict your addresses. The field is initialized with over 200 countries. To return to this default set, click Reset Countries.

You can change the width of the input boxes. The default setting, 60 pixels, is optimized to allow a map to appear next to the field, but this can, of course, be changed to suit your needs. The width of the Postal Code subfield is always 50% the width you designate. The width of the Country listbox is fixed and will not be affected if you change the width of the other subfields.

You can also select the default map type to display on forms.
