Purpose: Use this screen to indicate whether to capture the billing and shipping addresses for each invoice.
Yes/No field: Select this field to have the system create a record of the billing and shipping address in the Invoice Address table each time you bill a shipment.
Deriving the addresses: The system derives the shipping address from the Pick Control Header table. If there is no Pick Control Header record (if, for example, this is an express-bill order or a return), the system uses the delivery address for the order ship-to. The billing address is derived from the bill-to customer, if any, associated with the order; otherwise, the system uses the address of the Customer Sold To placing the order.
Why capture address? Capturing the invoice addresses in this table makes it easier to track the address related to each shipment. For example, if you shipped an order last week and the customer notified you of an address change yesterday, you can quickly identify the shipping address for the order, even though the address in the Customer Sold To table is now different.
Tax calculation at billing: If there is a record of the customer’s shipping address in the Invoice Address table during billing, the BILL_ASYNC job uses this address to calculate tax.
Express billing and credit invoices: If this system control value is selected, the system creates an Invoice Address record for the current billing and shipping address whenever you enter an express-bill order or create a credit invoice.
Leave this field unselected if you do not want to track billing and shipping addresses in the Invoice Address table. It is still possible to determine the address in effect for a particular shipment by checking the Address Change table. See for more information.
