CODE-1 Plus provides the C1AUXBLD utility program so you can build an EWS file as often as needed. This utility builds a Precisely-formatted file that will be utilized by the EWS module/lookup program.

To build the Auxiliary File with the EWS File:

  1. Download the latest EWS File from the USPS https://postalpro.usps.com/ website.

  2. Unzip the file and transfer it to the platform on which you are running CODE-1 Plus.

Note: iFor non-PC-based platforms, convert to a fixed length file with a record length of 89 bytes. Also, if transferring to a mainframe platform, be sure the character set is converted to EBCDIC. There are approximately 4,000 records on the EWS file, which are subject to change.

Building Your Auxiliary File

To build your Auxiliary File, follow these steps:

  1. Create a file (CRTPF) on your IBM i with a record length of 89.

  2. FTP or otherwise upload the EWS file into the file you just created.

  3. From the Work With Jobs screen, press F20 to access the Database Functions screen.

  4. Select Option 9: Convert EWS file into CODE-1 Plus format.

  5. On the next screen, fill in the Input EWS file parameters with the name of the file you created. The output file is automatically placed in your database library. The Output File and Address Element Locations are not changeable at this time.

  6. Press F6 to run the conversion. When you return to the menu, your file has been successfully converted and can be used as input to your CODE-1 job using the AUXIL1 parameter.
