Country/Region dialog box: options and information

In the Country/Region dialog box, you can add or edit a country name or region name.

The information that you add to this dialog box should be based on International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for country names. A2 is a two-letter abbreviation of a country name. An updated version of A2, named A3, added a third letter for better visual association with country names. The ISO number is a three-digit number that was created to facilitate the interpretation of country codes by countries that do not use Latin-based letters, such as Japan or Greece.
