Does anyone know the purpose of the address type and the content of the combo-box:
I've tried to look on the PS but found nothing interesting. I'd like to know how AX manages the content of this fields generally when selected on an address of a customer for example.
Thanks for helping. Greetz.
For example, an Invoice address (if defined) is automatically used when printing an invoice report.

I think there is no such "direct" usage as for the Invoice address, but you can define Alt. address(es) and copy it to a specific order or so. Only in case of Delivery/Alt. delivery address, also info about delivery mode is copied from the Address table to the order.
Martin is correct, as usual - if a customer has multiple delivery (ship-to) addresses you can store the default as "delivery" type and all the others as "alt. delivery" type. Then when users enter a new sales order, the order will get the default "delivery" type address but users can select from the "alt. delivery" type addresses and make AX copy the details to the delivery address on the sales order.
Another sales-related address type is "third-party shipping". If you try to copy it to a sales order, the details go the to "third-party shipping address" section on the order (right beside the delivery address on the sales order form). It is used when you ship with "third-party billing" option supported mainly by parcel carriers. You are shipping to company A but the shipping charges will be paid by company B (a third party) so you you need to inform the carrier about the address and account number of company B. That's you need another address on the sales order. As far as I know, this "third-party address" is intended to be used mainly when you have AX integrated to a shipping software such as UPS Worldship, FedEx ShipManager, Kewill's Clippership, etc. You can also print a third-party address on a Bill of Lading in AX but this should be a separate topic on its own.
I mostly use the "home" and "business" type addresses with contact persons in the CRM module.
The "blank" address type is also important because is some cases AX will try to find a "delivery" or "invoice" address and if these are not available it will take the "blank" address type.
Hi Martin, Thx for the answer. And what's the purpose of Alt.Delivery. Regards. Jemm
OK a bit late but thank you for the answer.
I'm now planning to use Address type --> "Payement", but I didn't found any documentation about this type.
Is there a process forseen for this type of address in AX ? Is there a link with the finance? Or is this completely informative?
