SAP Forms and Form Development – Collection
Address data and preparation
The function block ADDRESS_INTO_PRINTFORM
The function block ADDRESS_INTO_PRINTFORM prepares an address for printing. A correct postal address is processed in the desired number of rows. It also returns a single-line short address (name and location) and a two-line short address. The function module supports a number of country-specific processing forms. These depend on the country of destination.
The central address management
The central address management (ZAV) provides SAP customers with functions for managing addresses in the applications. Using the ZAV makes it easier for the user and developers to navigate the maintenance and use of addresses in different applications. These address tables contain addresses of all applications that use the ZAV in a system.
Transaction ‘I18N’ is important for all language-related topics in the SAP system landscape. This includes customizing the code page landscape, reviewing and customizing language installations, and customizing print settings.

One of the main differences between text types is that text modules are connected to the automatic transport system. TExt modules are client-independent. SAPScript texts, on the other hand, are client-dependent. They must be transferred manually to a transfer order. As a tool for transporting SO10 texts – RSTXTRAN.
