External Address Validation

Use a Web service to validate addresses and confirm the address in real-time prior to loading the details into SAP or your system of record. This is especially important because address data varies between countries.

Address Doctor is one web service that can be used to address this and the one we will be using in this example, but there are other Web-based address verification options also available.

NOTE: To follow this example with a non-code approach you need Winshuttle Designer 10.6 or higher. (Prior to Designer 10.6 you would need to use JavaScript.)


  • Reduces or eliminates mistakes that can be introduced when an address is incorrectly entered into a form.
  • Ensures your system of record is accurate.
  • Save research time and costly shipping mistakes.
