In the Preprocessing upgrade checklist, click Default country/region to open the Default country/region for addresses form.

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, all postal addresses must have a corresponding country/region. Use this form to validate and update the default country/region code for each company in your organization. When you upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 or Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, the country/region that you select here becomes the country/region for any address records for a company that do not have a specified country/region. After you have completed the Prepare application data for preprocessing section of the Preprocessing upgrade checklist, you can use the Addresses with no country/region form to change the country/region for an address record.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
