how to create address field with address datatype in custom object?
hi Shivani,
   Unfortunately the "Address" field is something special in Salesforce such that you can't create something like that and have it behave exactly like that in the User interface of custom object. 
   You could however create individual text fields that would contain the address, city, state and zip codes.

i hope it helps you.
   Let me inform if it helps you and kindly mark it best answer if it helps you so it make proper solution for others
thanks  ( )

Thanks & Regards,

Hopefully it's coming soon. Add a new Standard field type: Address (
