City not known in county for delivery address

  • erikvdheijden Saturday, May 12, 2018 7:45 PM Reply

    For the Netherlands the region or state has to be filled in the delivey-address.

    IIn the Netherlands that is not applicable so the province is used (which nobody uses in an address in the Netherlands).

    But but the province I live in only a few cities have been included (and i live in the capital city of the province).

    When I try to enter the name, I get an error message stating a use an unallowed character ('). But that character is a part off the name ('s-Hertogenbosch).

    Please create a correct way to check the address or make it free format. This is lousy.

    What happens if you simply leave the apostrophe off, or type in "Den Bosch" instead, does the order address field still reject it? Would your postman not find you with either of those?

    Will the form. accept "Oeteldonk"? Would that get through the post?


    From the Wikipedia listing it sounds like a nice place, with some fascinating history. Who are the two guys on the coat of arms, and why are they wearing parsley (or is it broccoli)?

    I wonder how many place names there are in the world that start with an apostrophe? 's-Hertogenbosch does look a beautiful city but I think that I and the majority of non-Europeans could be forgiven for having never heard of a city starting with “’s”.

    For once, my sympathies are with the IT crew for not having catered for what is probably a unique situation. It may be fair to call them (and me) ignorant, but surely not “lousy”. I doubt their oversight was intended as a slight to the Dutch.

    In any case Erik, it’s unlikely you are the first to have placed an order from 's-Hertogenbosch and I haven’t seen any complaints of non-delivery… There must be some way-
