MATCH LEVEL

1

Indicates the level of match obtained against the Line of Travel Master File.

  • Blank — Invalid input was presented. Records with invalid input contain zeroes or non-numeric data in the ZIP and/or ZIP+4 Code field or non-numeric DPC or invalid Carrier Route Code.

  • 9 — Match against the Master File was successful.

  • C — Call to matcher failed.

  • D — Valid input was presented, but no match was successful with the Master File. Records with valid input contain numeric, non-zero data in the ZIP and ZIP+4 Code fields, plus a numeric DPC, and a valid formatted Carrier Route Code.

  • F — Master file open/read failure.

  • V — Master file not compatible with Line of Travel software.

2-5

LINE OF TRAVEL (LOT) SEQUENCE NUMBER

4

Four-digit Line of Travel (LOT) sequence number generated from the input data defined in Parameter 1.

If valid input was presented, but no match was successful with the Master File, the record is default coded, and this field contains zeroes. Please note that default-coded records are eligible for the basic enhanced carrier route rate.

If invalid input was presented, this field is blank.

6

LINE OF TRAVEL (LOT) SEQUENCE CODE

1

One-character Line of Travel (LOT) sequence code generated from the input data defined in Parameter 1.

  • Blank — No LOT number could be determined, due to invalid input.

  • A — Ascending.

  • D — Descending.

Note: NOTE: If valid input was presented, but no match was successful with the Master File, the record will be default coded, and this code will be returned.

7-8

ALTERNATE SEQUENCE CODE

2

Two-character code used for final sortation in place of the DPC add-on, which allows you to sort your file in ascending sequence only, instead of both ascending and descending. This code is determined from the DPC add-on field and the LOT sequence code. It consists of an uppercase letter followed by a digit 0 through 9. Values range from "A0" (99 descending) through "J9" (00 descending), and "K0" (00 ascending) through "T9" (99 ascending).

9

HEXADECIMAL SEQUENCE CODE

1

Single-character code used for final sortation in place of the DPC add-on, which allows you to sort your file in ascending sequence only, instead of both ascending and descending. This hexadecimal value is determined from the DPC add-on field and the LOT sequence code. There are 200 values ranging from 99 descending through 00 descending, then 00 ascending through 99 ascending.

NOTE: LTO10 returns both an alternate sequence code and a hexadecimal sequence code.
