QAD EE stores entity addresses differently for customer and supplier addresses. To implement Vertex on QAD EE, it is important to understand the differences.
Customer and Supplier Address Records
When creating a business relation record, you define the business relation address, which creates an address record in the database.
When you create a customer or supplier record, you assign the business relation to use with the record. This process again creates a new address record in the database, and the system copies the address information from the business relation to the customer or supplier address record.
Note: Address records in the database also hold the tax information for the address. Any transactions that require customer or supplier tax data refer to the address record of the customer or supplier, not the business relation.
