Optional. Use AM OUT to identify the location on the output record to store the return codes. The address matching return codes provide you with the results of the attempt to match the records against the information in the CODE-1 Plus database. These codes are very useful for analyzing your CODE-1 Plus processing results. If you do not specify a location for a return code, CODE-1 Plus does not store that return code on the output record.

Delivery Sequence File (DSF2) footnotes are 2-character, USPS-defined codes that represent the changes that were made to the input address during the matching process. CODE-1 Plus can store up to 50 of these codes for each record, resulting in a 100-character output field. After CODE-1 Plus finishes processing, you can run your output file through a delivery sequence program (not provided by Precisely) to sort your records into delivery sequence. The delivery sequence program looks at these footnotes when sorting the records.
