Version: 8.6 and Above
When the Avalara Integration is enabled, the following changes will take effect in Location File Maintenance.
Location File Maintenance must be run under version 8.6. If the user attempts to run the application under version 8.5, they will receive the following message:
Location File Maintenance supports an address validation function if enabled in Global Setup. This check is performed when a location is added or when the address fields are changed. If the address needs to be changed to meet the USPS database requirements, the application will prompt the user to either accept or reject the suggested address.
See Avalara Address Validation for more information on this function.
Country validation is required to enable Avalara Integration. Entries in the country field will be validated and the user will either receive an error or a warning message if a country is entered that is not on file. See Country Validation for more information. If country validation is enforced, the application will allow the entry of spaces for the country to signify a default country of USA.
