If you have purchased Geographic Coding Plus from Precisely, you can access that product directly from CODE-1 Plus by typing the command GEO in the Command field on any CODE-1 Plus screen. The Geographic Coding Interface screen displays. If you do a match attempt before you enter the GEO command, your matched ZIP Code and ZIP + 4 Code appear in ZIP Code fields on the Geographic Coding Interface screen. This is the first screen of geographic coding data for your matched address. Please refer to your Geographic Coding Plus User's Guide for further reference on the fields and function keys on this screen.
