should stop truncating postal code to 5 digits from standard 9 digits.

Hi All,


I am sending a request to one system for matching record. It will send the response back with matching record ((to SFDC) with standard 9 digit postal code. But SFDC is trimming to 5 digits and saves into DB.  Means we are degrading data quality from SFDC side, Right?


Is there any way to stop that process?


any suggestion would be appreciated !!






Create a custom Zip Code and keep the length of this field according to your requirement.


Let me know if you have any question around this.
