Hi @Nutraquestion 

There is an id field for customer addresses that you may be able to use for your application. Take a look at our docs here: You can see that the address field for the Customer object contains an id field. Hope this helps!

thanks for the reply... it seems when i pulled a CSV that the ID field actually changes with every order. i need something that can identify each of the saved address for a customer by a different number. can you think of any other fields that might work?

secondly. if i were to use the first or last name as my identifier. would i be able to hide that info when we ship our? so it is not seen on the shipping label?
