NOTE

You can add and edit addresses in the Address Maintenance window regardless of which Supplier page you access the window from. However, if you want to create a link between an address and a supplier, you will need to open the Supplier page for that supplier to create it.

You can add an address to a supplier's profile in one of two ways:

The instructions for both of these methods are detailed below.

NOTE

New address types and Other Details types must be created by the system administrator using the Maintenance>System>Address/Phone>Address Type...and Phone/Email Types... menu before they can be accessed from within the Detail tab. An address type can only be used once per supplier.
