ABOUT THE “GetAddressService” DEMO

“Accurate addresses are a must if you ship goods or delivering marketing materials. This extension connects to an external service to verify and get the correct address based on a local address database. Whenever you specify a customer, vendor, contact, or any address in the United Kingdom, this extension helps you make verify that you got the right address.”

You need to download NAV 2018 GB Database to test this demo: example: “NAV 2018 GB.zip”

The demo shown is the one found in the demo section on the GitHUB page of Microsoft AL

 

‘Would you like to look for addresses on this post code online?

In this demo it is possible to search for an address starting from an online post code, the system uses the search system in force in the United Kingdom.
