SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud


The Netherlands Antilles was divided into Bonaire, Saint Eustatius and Saba (BQ, BES, 535), Curaçao (CW, CUW, 531) and Sint Maarten (Dutch part) (SX, SXM, 534). To conform with the ISO Code list, the two country values below will be added to the object Country in a future enhancement (Enhancement tracked in ECT-126043):

Code Label Country Code (2 char) Country Code (numeric-3) Currency Code
BES Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba BQ 535 USD
SXM Sint Maarten (Dutch part) SX 534 ANG

Once the Country object is updated with this change in a future release, The ISOCountryList picklist will need to be manually updated to match these values.


  • The 'Country' MDF Object can be manually updated to add these Country changes, and the ISOCountryList should also be updated to match the 'Country' Object.
  • To check for differences between the Country object and the ISOCountryList picklist, run the Check Tool check "Difference between MDF country objects and picklist “ISOCountryList” (CountryMDFObjectsLegacyPicklistIdentical)". For more details on this check, see KBA 2631389.

Note: The values maintained in the “Country” MDF picklist must match the values in the “ISOCountryList” picklist, to ensure various UI’s can resolve Country Specific fields/information. If there is an inconsistency between the 2 lists, this can cause disruption to UI operation. The consistency is compared based on External Code (which is the 3 letter ISO code)
