How to control the Customers VAT Registration Number format in Business Central?

When entering a VAT number in the VAT registration number fields on the customer cards, we will have a validation of the format.

This is what happens in the video

So now I try to take this number and it says it has a validation issue and that’s because that this VAT registration number does not fulfill the Danish requirements.

So I want to find out what format I can do it in the Danish VAT registration number. See how I have a Danish customer, so I must go to the country region table.

And in this table, I will find Denmark as my Danish customer.

And in the top, I can have under navigate, country region. I have the VAT registration number formats.

So actually here I can see that the format for Denmark would be DK and then eight numbers or just numbers. Dk, 8 numbers in pairs of two, or just in pairs of two.

So those are the valid formats for Denmark. If I delete the format here, it will not make any validation when I enter the VAT registration number in the VAT registration number field.
