Optional. Use CONFIG to identify the matching configuration that is being used in this job. If this configuration matches one of the configurations that Precisely has CASS-certified with the USPS, a USPS Form 3553 prints at the end of the CODE-1 Plus job. For more information on CASS-certified configurations, refer to the CODE-1 Plus User's Guide.

Note: iIf you do not include this parameter in your job, CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553 CASS report.

This feature enables you to specify configuration information for CASS certification. Some of the information that is stored on this parameter is the same as information stored on other parameters. The specified CONFIG parameter values override the values specified on other parameters.

This configuration information is particularly useful when you want to use an existing job, but you want to make sure that it qualifies for automation-based discounts. Instead of checking all of the information stored on the other parameters, you could just add CONFIG information to override the information in the other parameters.

Note: iCODE-1 Plus only prints the USPS form 3553 when a job's parameter settings correspond to a Precisely certified configuration.

  • Y: Accept multiple matches. The standardized address returned is the last one in the stack of multiple matches that were found.

  • N: Do not accept multiple matches.

NOTE: A Y in this position results in a non-CASS certified configuration. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

16

Maximum Address Correctness

Optional. Maximum acceptable address probability of correctness. Enter a number between 0 and 9, where 0 indicates the best case and 9 indicates the worst case. No default.

18

Maximum Overall Correctness

Optional. Maximum acceptable overall probability of correctness. Enter a number between 0 and 9, where 0 indicates the best case and 9 indicates the worst case. No default.

20-21

User-Specified Configuration Number

Optional. Two-digit ID number to assign to this configuration. No default.

NOTE: This has no relation to the Precisely CASS-certified configuration IDs. It is for your reference only.

23

Terminate If Non-CASS Certified

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to terminate the CODE-1 Plus job if an option has been selected that results in a non-CASS-certified configuration.

  • Y: Terminate if non-CASS-certified configuration

  • N: Do not terminate if non-CASS-certified configuration.

  • Blank: Default is N.

25-27

Execution Log Counter

Optional. Number of records (in thousands) to trigger progress reporting in execution log (100=100,000). Default is 10,000.

36

Output Case Option

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to return mixed case in all address components:

  • C: Return all address components that contain text in mixed case.

  • L: Return all address components that contain text in lower case.

  • Blank: Matched output is returned in all uppercase.

38

Dual Address Match Logic

Optional. Specify a code to indicate how to handle addresses with multiple non-blank address lines or multiple address types on the same address line:

  • S: Return a street match, regardless of the address line.

  • P: Return a PO Box match, regardless of the address line.

  • Blank: Normal match scoring for street address elements, input ZIP Code, matching address line, and so on.

NOTE: Under normal conditions, a PO Box cannot match if the city name and input ZIP Code are both changed.

NOTE: If S or P is selected, a non-CASS-certified configuration will be generated. No PS Form 3553 will be generated.

DMM 708 states to match to a PO Box first when on the same address line or the PO Box address is the primary address line.

40

Unique ZIP Code Handling

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether the Input ZIP Code should be returned when there is no correlation between the input city/state and ZIP Code:

  • X: Store the Input ZIP Code.

  • Blank: Do NOT store the Input ZIP Code.

NOTE: If you specify X, a non-CASS certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

42

PMB Handling

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to store non-standard private mailbox numbers:

  • X: Store ALL private mailbox numbers.

  • Blank: Store ONLY standard private mailbox numbers.

NOTE: If you specify X, a non-CASS-certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

44

Enhanced High Rise Alternate Matching

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to use Enhanced High Rise Alternate Matching to convert a building name used as a street address to the correct, USPS-preferred address street name associated with that building:

  • Y: Yes, attempt to match to the base record when an alternate match is made and the input address contains secondary address information.

  • N: No, do not attempt to match to the base record.

  • Blank: Default is Y.

NOTE: If you specify N, a non-CASS-certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

46

Multiple Secondary Component Processing

Optional. Specify a code to indicate how to handle multiple secondary component processing:

  • Y: Attempt secondary match.

  • N: Assign default ZIP+4 Code.

  • Blank: Default is Y.

NOTE: If you specify N, a non-CASS-certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

49

Use Non-Standard City Names

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether or not the matcher should return vanity city names when they most closely match the input record:

  • X: Yes, return vanity city names when they most closely match the input city names. When this option is selected, if you input a city name that is not a USPS primary city, but is a valid vanity name, the vanity name is returned.

  • Blank: No, never return vanity city names.

NOTE: Please note the following when defining the Use Non-Standard City Names field:

  • If X is chosen, a CASS certified configuration will be created, but you will not be able to get a postal automation presort discount.

  • If you leave this field blank, and the only matching city on the database is a vanity city, the word "ZIP" and the ZIP Code is stored in the Standardized City location on your output record.

  • If you define this field to return the short city name, and a vanity city name is greater than 13 characters, CODE-1 Plus does not return the input vanity city name if CODE-1 Plus is set up to accept vanity city names. Instead, CODE-1 Plus returns the primary city name or, if the primary city name has a short city name, the primary short city name is returned. The USPS does not store short city names for vanity cities and CASS regulations state that the software will return the primary city name/primary short city name when the input vanity long city name is entered.

51

Enhanced Street Matching Option

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to use Enhanced Street Matching (ESM) or All Street Matching (ASM) during CODE-1 Plus processing:

  • A: Use All Street Matching (ASM).

  • S: Use Enhanced Street Matching (ESM).

  • Blank: Do not use enhanced street matching.

53

Limited Locality Option

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to perform address matching against multiple localities during CODE-1 Plus processing:

  • X: Limit address match to ZIP Code locality.

  • Blank: Conduct standard processing

If you specify X, a non-CASS-certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

55

Split Indica

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to perform Split Indicia processing:

  • Y: Perform split indicia processing

  • N: Do not perform split indicia processing.

  • Blank: Default is Y.

If you specify N, a non-CASS-certified configuration is created. CODE-1 Plus does not generate the USPS Form 3553.

57

C/O Data Flag

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to append care-of (C/O) data to the end of the output address line:

  • Y: Append C/O data.

  • Blank: Do not append C/O data

59

Reserved

 

Note: iThe "MMM" strictness code is the only CASS-certified configuration which generates the USPS Form 3553. Any other combination of strictness code (for example, "MEM"), does not generate a USPS Form 3553.
Note: iThe values in the Maximum Address Correction and Maximum Overall Correction fields must match the values in similar fields in the CR OUT, CS OUT, SA OUT, Z4 OUT, and Z5 OUT parameters. If these fields do not match in all parameters, an invalid USPS Form 3553 is generated.
