Fun with JScript: Copying Ship To Address to Bill To Address

Do you have Billing and Shipping Addresses on any of your forms? Do you have customers that keep asking if there is a way to click a button and copy the address from one to the other if they are the same? Well, here is a sample piece of code I built that will do just that. This assumes that you are making the Billing Address the same as the Shipping Address, but you can modify it to fit any scenario and adjust the fields included as needed.

Thanks to David Pritchett from ePartners to providing me with this code for the blog.

1) Create an attribute (I used a bit –Yes/No). Call it something like “Billing Same As Shipping.”

2) Put this attribute on your form where the addresses are.

3) Add the following code to the OnChange event of this new attribute and enable:

/* Declare your variables to store the data from the Address fields on the form so we can reference them later */

var osaddress1_line1 = document.crmForm.all.address1_line1.DataValue;

var osaddress1_line2 = document.crmForm.all.address1_line2.DataValue;

var osaddress1_line3 = document.crmForm.all.address1_line3.DataValue;

var osaddress1_city = document.crmForm.all.address1_city.DataValue;

var osaddress1_stateorprovince = document.crmForm.all.address1_stateorprovince.DataValue;

var osaddress1_county = document.crmForm.all.address1_county.DataValue;

var osaddress1_postalcode = document.crmForm.all.address1_postalcode.DataValue;

var osaddress1_country = document.crmForm.all.address1_country.DataValue;

var osaddress1_fax = document.crmForm.all.address1_fax.DataValue;

var osaddress1_telephone = document.crmForm.all.address1_telephone1.DataValue;

/* Declare your variable to capture the data from the attribute being changed – Billing Same As Shipping in this case */

var oField = event.srcElement;

/* If the value of the Billing Same As Shipping field you captured is 1 (Yes), then update all of the corresponding Billing Address fields with the data from the Address fields */

if (oField.DataValue == 1)


document.crmForm.all.address2_line1.DataValue = osaddress1_line1;

document.crmForm.all.address2_line2.DataValue = osaddress1_line2;

document.crmForm.all.address2_line3.DataValue = osaddress1_line3;

document.crmForm.all.address2_city.DataValue= osaddress1_city;

document.crmForm.all.address2_stateorprovince.DataValue = osaddress1_stateorprovince;

document.crmForm.all.address2_county.DataValue = osaddress1_county;

document.crmForm.all.address2_postalcode.DataValue = osaddress1_postalcode;

document.crmForm.all.address2_country.DataValue = osaddress1_country;

document.crmForm.all.address2_fax.DataValue = osaddress1_fax;

document.crmForm.all.address2_telephone1.DataValue = osaddress1_telephone;


There you have it! All of the data from the Shipping Address fields will be copied to the Billing Address fields when you select the “Yes” option on your new attribute.
