From Address Book (G01), enter 29
From Address Book Setup (G0141), choose State-Province Country Codes
Before you can add address book records, you must set up the state/province country codes that you use. The Address Book Revisions program (P01051) validates that the combination of state (or province) and country exists in the State-Province/Country Code file (F0075) when you add a new address book record.
If you set up the same state code for a multiple countries, the system automatically displays the State/Country Window (P0075W) so that you can choose the correct country for the state or province code that you enter for the address book record.
Ensure that the user-defined code table (UDC) for Country Codes (01/CN) is set up.
You use the State-Province Country Codes program (P0075) to set up the abbreviation for the state or province for the corresponding country code defined in UDC table 01/CN. The program allows a three-character abbreviation for both state (province) and country codes. The system does not validate the code that you enter for the state.

Depending on your country, you might be required to complete the FI (Fiscal Identification) field instead of the State field for reporting purposes
