Looking for a way to automatically populate the ship to if it is the same as the bill to address. You would think there would be a check box to do this
Where exactly in the application are you trying to automate this bill to address?
Is it ont he BP master record in the Addresses Tab?
Or is it on the document (such as a sales order)?
Or is this only important when the paper work prints?
The automation approach would change depending upon the "end result" you are looking for.
The addon application spoken of may indeed be a solution, but it will be an expensive one (4-5k). You may be able to do this with a simple formatted search, and a user defined field ont he BP record to tell the system that the ship to and bill to are the same.
Let me know what the real intention is and I can give you a more specific solution to try.
