To use SuiteLink when calling C1MATCHI from your own driver, the following five conditions must be returned from C1MATCHI.

  • There must be a firm name in the P9I input area (P9IFRM).

  • There must be a house number in the P9O output area (P9OHS-LB).

  • The default record indicator must be returning a value of "H" in the P9O output area (P9ODFR).

  • The USPS record type must be returning a value of "H" in the P9O output area (P9ORTP).

  • There must be spaces in both the P9O General Return Code and the 9-digit Return Code in the output area (P9OGRC and P9O9RC).

If you get a match back from SuiteLink, you need to re-invoke the matcher with the new data. However, do not use the firm name that is returned; just use the secondary information.

Note: iYou can find the P9COMM copybook (a combination of P9IN, P9OUT, and P9AUDIT) with other copybooks delivered.

You can also optionally perform the following.

  • Determine the action to take for SuiteLink errors.

  • Determine whether an expired SuiteLink database can cause a job to terminate.

  • Set the Small Memory Model flag.
