In the USPS database, streets may have more than one name. All streets have one and only one base street name and may have one or more alias street names. Base and alias street names refer to a portion of the street, such as a house range or group of ranges. Both are valid, USPS deliverable addresses.

The USPS identified three types of alias street names:

  • USPS-preferred street name

  • Official street name change as a result of a chamber of commerce action

  • Other

If the alias street name is a "preferred alias," CODE-1 Plus always stores the alias name instead of the base name.

If the alias street name is an "official street name change," CODE-1 Plus always stores the base name instead of the alias name.

If the alias street name is of type "other," CODE-1 Plus stores the alias or base, depending on the option you choose on the Return Base Street Name if Alias is matched? field.

To access the Standardized Address Storage Options screen:

  1. From the Name/Address Record Posting screen, page down to the Standardized Address Storage Options screen (C1CPOD045).

  2. Use the following table to complete the fields on the Standardized Address Storage Options screen.
