Be careful with Country Region Codes

When developing in X++, be careful when assigning some Extended Data Type to a table column, for example.

Extended Data Types have the Country Region Codes property, which, as the help text says, is a "Comma separated list of Country Region Codes where this can be shown".

This means that if you are working on a localization project for a Brazilian company for example, and you use an Extended Data Type which Region Code is "FR", for France, on a table column, that column won't be shown. Simple as that, it will not appear anywhere in any form.

You should always use the correct Country Region Code for your EDTs, depending on the country of the Legal Entity you're working with.
