The Address Infotype (1028)

Definition

The Address infotype allows you to append an address to different objects.

Use

In Organizational Management, the infotype may be appended to organizational units, work centers, and positions. Address information is for reference purposes only, so it is not mandatory to maintain it.

In Training and Event Management, the infotype may be appended to locations, resources, external persons, companies, and kitchen facilities. Depending on the object you are working with, the system may require the information for processing, or the infotype may be optional.

You must maintain this infotype for locations. The address stated for locations is used in business event confirmation letters. Confirmation letters are generated for participants in a business event, and the letters include the address where the event takes place.

You must maintain this infotype for either companies, or external persons. Again, the system requires the information to identify where external events take place.

You do not have to maintain this infotype for resources and kitchen facilities. The information is for reference purposes only.
