It has always been the case in NAV and now in Business Central where the State field is a code field with no relation to a table of states. We have added this to so many installations over the years when users ask for it. It is necessary when doing any kind of development logic based on the state field. To ensure rules are setup to correspond to a list of common values. Otherwise, there are cases where users will enter incorrect data. Can we have a States table? Or an option for it in North America? I understand there are localization issues that arise out of this, but would be so beneficial, rather than us have to add it in whenever we build an extension related to the state value.

Hello Mike, 

Thank you for the suggestion and I agree that it would be nice to have this. We will look into this for a future release.
