Can somebody recommend a simple and effective standard (universal - international - ISO?) for holding names and address details in data (database/column based file).

Thanks

Carl.

Not sure what you mean here...but something like this would be fairly standard...


Table Name: Customers
Fields:
cID (Primary Key, AutoNumber)
cFName (Text)
cLName (Text)
cMiddleInit (Text)
cAddress( Text)
cAddress2 (Text)
cCity (Text)
cStateOrProvince (Text)
cPostalCode (Text)
cCountry (Text)

Thanks Jeff,

Yes that is very close to what I do now.  However, I was looking for an officially recognized Standard for personal details management - such as one by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), or some similarly recognized Government or industry body.

My searching thus far has come up blank.

I don't think there is such a thing...
But if you are really into this sort of thing see this link:
http://www.isotc211.org/address/docs/Draft_ISO19160-1_20111208.pdf



Note that this is a very broad topic...

You can get into things like TitleOfCourtesy, Email, Phone, ...etc
...That would technically require related tables...

Thanks, that is closer to what I am after and I am aware of the complexities of the topic.  

I just thought someone would have come up with a simple and standard data dictionary for such commonly required data.
