Maintain foreign address data in ESS

As of SAP ECC 6.0, enhancement package 3, we can activate the " HCM, ESS for Personal Information (HCM_ESS_CI_1)" business function, which will make available the "Maintain foreign address data in ESS" functionality.

As per the SAP documentation, "Employees can maintain foreign addresses with country-specific formats. If a country-specific format does not exist, an employee can use the international address format available. This ensures that address data is entered and maintained in the appropriate format.".

My questions:

1. how is this different than the country-specific iViews available before the enhancement package3?

2. I am not familiar with any "international address" iView in Portal. what is the international address format? where is this stored? and how does it work if no "international address" iView exists in the portal?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, additional fields should be added for country-specific functionality (pls note customizing is required), alsomore, you can choose the way in that users will use the app; one iView for all, or one per country.
