There are three major steps you must perform to use EWS in your CODE-1 Plus jobs:

  • Step 1 — Download the latest EWS File onto the NT/Windows machine. This file can be found on at the USPS https://postalpro.usps.com/ website.

  • Step 2 — Unzip the downloaded file to extract the EWS raw data.

  • Step 3 — Translate the downloaded EWS File into a form that is recognized by CODE-1 Plus by using the C1AUXBLD utility.

  • Step 4 — Tell CODE-1 Plus you want to use the translated EWS database, the Auxiliary File, in your job by using the AUXIL1 parameter.

Each step is detailed below, with platform-specific detail where needed.
