Optional. Use CS OUT to define the location in the output record to write the standardized city and state information.

Note: iIf a vanity city name is greater than 13 characters, CODE-1 Plus will not return the input vanity city name if CODE-1 Plus is set up to accept vanity city names. Instead, CODE-1 Plus will return the primary city name or, if the primary city name has a short city name, the primary short city name. The USPS does not store short city names for vanity cities and CASS regulations state that the software must return the primary city name/primary short city name when the input vanity long city name is entered.

Standardized city/state information is formatted to conform to USPS conventions and matched against the master file. Dropped information is data that was present in the input city/state line, but was ignored during the analysis process.
