3413736 - Customer Invoice Form Shows City and Country Name in Uppercase


You have noticed that for some invoice documents the City and Country name are showing in Uppercase.


SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Search for ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Customer Invoice).
  4. Click Preview.

In the template you can see that the Bill To City and Country name shows in uppercase.


The reason the system is showing the city and country name in uppercase is because the address exceeds 3 (three) lines. 

For addresses which does not exceeds 3 (three) lines, system performs the following logic: 

  • If the postal address collective data is not surpassing 3 (three) lines, then the system considers it as incomplete data in the postal address, even though there some information maintained in the address. This leads to a recalculation of the formatting for the address, considering only the street address and not the postal address (which includes city & zipcode), and since there is no postal address passed to the routine for uppercase functionality, no uppercase for postal code is happening for address line which does not exceeds 3 (three) lines.


This is the expected system behavior.
