This profile option controls whether users can enter information in the Alternate Name field in the Customers and Customer Addresses windows. This field lets you enter a phonetic representation of a customer name. Alternate names are used primarily in Japan to enter and sort customer information using Kana characters. Receivables also uses this information when you choose Customer Name Sort as a parameter when printing certain Receivables reports (for example, the Customer Listing - Detail or Summary report). Refer to the AR: Sort Customer Reports by Alternate Fields profile option in this section.
After setting the profile option 'AR: Customers - Enter Alternate Fields' to Yes, users can enter information in the 'Alternate Name' field in the Customers Site page, but there is no 'Alternate Name' field in the Customers page.
