Use the Match Settings screen to tailor your processing requirements and specify whether CODE-1 Plus should perform ZIP Code correction. For each of the matching algorithms, you can change the default tightness/looseness settings. These settings indicate how close the data on the database must be to the input address in order for a match to occur. The tighter the setting, the more closely the input address must match the database information. To access this screen, enter MS in the Command field or press F4 from any match results screen.

You can modify the fields on the top half of the physical screen, along with the address matching fields. When the Match Settings screen displays, you can only enter data in the settings fields on the upper right portion of the screen. To save your new settings and return to the previous screen, press Enter. Once changed, the settings stay changed for subsequent matches until you change the settings again or exit.

Note: iAlthough this screen allows you to change the default matching algorithm settings, we suggest that you maintain the default settings: (M)edium for all matching, and Y(es) for ZIP correction.
