Purpose

The idea of this section is to explain how the postal code is handled within Belgian specific Infotypes .

The usage of  Belgium postal codes tables have resulted in several question. This
 information tries to answer most of them.

Overview

Table Postal Codes Villages (B) T5B5C:

1.  Why does a postal code (BEPST) includes a suffix ? (Example    Glimes: 1315A)

    The postal code is a key value of the table, hence the value has to
    be unique.

    The official post code:

    o  May refer to several districts (relation 1:n). Example:

       -  1315, Glimes

       -  1315, Incourt

       -  1315, Opprebais

       -  1315, Piétrebais

 o  May refer to several districts (relation 1:n). Example:

    -  1315, Glimes

    -  1315, Incourt

    -  1315, Opprebais

    -  1315, Piétrebais

 o  May have several official languages (relation 1:n). Example:

    -  1000, Brussel, language Dutch

    -  1000, Bruxelles, language French
                                                            
 For each  district and official language the table T5B5C has to have an entry. 

 The assignment of 1 post code to n districts and languages is done
 by means of adding an alphabet in the post code => postal code.
 Example: 1315+A (Glimes)

 2.  Where are Postal codes (BEPST) used?

     Postal codes are used in the following infotypes:

     o  Address information (0006)

     o  Bank details (0009)

     o  External Transfers(0011)

     In reports, the 4 first digits of postal codes are used, a letter is
     not read. District names are used in reports as displayed in the
     infotype.

3.  How can i change old entries?

    The  existing table entries can be changed manually, by using
    transaction SM31 for view V_T5B5C.
