Optional. Use AP OUT to identify the location on the output file to store the information that was dropped during the analysis process as well as the normalized address lines. Dropped address information is data that CODE-1 Plus ignored during the analysis and matching process. This parameter also defines how normalized address information is formatted to conform to USPS conventions.

Required. AP OUT is the only acceptable entry.

Format of Extra Data in Output Record

Optional. This field defines how two types of extra data display in the output record.

  • Additional input data: Any information that is defined on the input address lines but is not sent to the matcher for processing is identified as additional input data.

  • Unmatched data: Any information passed to the matcher that is not used in the matching process is identified as unmatched data.

Enter one of the following codes:

  • F: Fixed length format. Extra data will be posted "as is" in eleven output fields:

    • Six 100-byte length fields will contain additional input data (information that is defined on the input address lines but is not sent to the matcher for processing).
    • Five 100-byte length fields will contain unmatched data (information passed to the matcher that was not used in the matching process).
  • C: Concatenated format. Additional input data (information that is defined on the input address lines but is not sent to the matcher for processing) is concatenated and written into one field that:

    • Starts in the location specified in position 10 of this parameter.
    • Is separated by the character specified in position 26 of this parameter.

Any information passed to the matcher that is not used in the matching process is identified as unmatched data. Unmatched data is concatenated and written into one field that:

  • Starts in the location specified in position 18 of this parameter.

  • Is separated by the character specified in position 26 of this parameter.

  • Blank: Default is F.

10-12

Location for Additional Input Data

Optional. Location on the output record for additional input data. (Any information that is defined on input address lines but is not sent to the matcher for processing is identified as additional input data.) No default.

14-16

Length of Additional Input Data

Optional. Length of the additional input data specified in positions 10-12 of this parameter.

  • If you specify F in position 8 and a value other than 600 in this field, CODE-1 Plus generates an error and stops processing.

  • If you specify C in position 8, CODE-1 Plus truncates any data posted beyond the length specified here.

  • Blank: Default is 600.

18-20

Location for Extra Data from Matcher

Optional. Location on the output record for extra data from the matcher. (Any information passed to the matcher that is not used in the matching process is identified as unmatched data.) No default.

22-24

Length of Extra Data from Matcher

Optional. Length of output extra data from the matcher (unmatched data) specified in positions 18-20.

  • If you specified F in position 8 of this parameter and some value other than 500 is posted in this field, CODE-1 Plus generates an error and stops processing.

  • If you specified C in position 8 of this parameter, CODE-1 Plus truncates any data posted beyond the length specified here.

  • Blank: Default is 500.

26

Data Separator

Optional. If you specified C in position 8 of this parameter, specify a character to separate the additional input data or the extra data from the matcher (unmatched data). Default is semicolon ";".

30

Storage Conditions: Normalized Primary Address Line

Optional. Specify a code to indicate the conditions under which the normalized primary address line should be stored:

  • A: Store for all records.

  • X: Store only when standardized address is not stored.

  • Blank: Default is X.

32-34

Location for Normalized Primary Address Line

Optional. Location on the output record for the normalized primary address line. No default.

36-37

Length of Normalized Primary Address Line

Optional. Length of the normalized primary address line. No default.

39

Storage conditions: Normalized Secondary Address Line

Optional. Specify a code to indicate the conditions under which the normalized secondary address line should be stored:

  • A: Store for all records.

  • D: Store dropped dual address from matched address.

  • X: Store only when standardized address is not stored.

  • Blank: Default is X.

41-43

Location for Normalized Secondary Address Line

Optional. Location on the output record for the normalized secondary address line. No default.

45-46

Length of Normalized Secondary Address Line

Optional. Length of the normalized secondary address line. No default

48-50

Location for Dropped Primary "Care Of" Data

52-53

Length of Dropped Primary "Care Of" Data

Optional. Length of the "care of" data dropped from the primary address line. No default.

55-57

Location for Dropped Secondary "Care Of" Data

Normalization Type (No match)

Optional. Code indicating whether all address types or only selected address types should be normalized. The selected address types are "GENERAL DELIVERY" keywords, PO BOX keywords, and RR/HC keywords.

  • X: Normalize select address types otherwise return input. If X is selected, SA OUT position 19 must be I.

  • Blank: Normalize specified address line regardless of address type.
