  • Y — Yes, attempt to DPV confirm.

  • N — No, do not attempt to DPV confirm.

  • Blank — Default is Y.

18

Multiple Match Option - Suffix/Directional Correction

  • Y — Yes, attempt to DPV confirm.

  • N — No, do not attempt to DPV confirm.

  • Blank — Default is Y.

20

Multiple Match Option - Multiple Input Secondary Components with No Designator

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to attempt to DPV confirm if your input file contains multiple matches of the secondary components with no designator:

  • Y — Yes, attempt to DPV confirm.

  • N — No, do not attempt to DPV confirm.

  • Blank — Default is Y.

NOTE: If you select N, you will generate a non-CASS-certified configuration. No USPS Form 3553 is generated.

Below is an example of secondary components with no designator:

John Jones12 Main St. #12 #5New York, NY 10012

#12 and #5 have no indication of being an apartment, PO Box, or other.

22

DPV Secondary Address Validation

Optional. DPV automatically attempts to validate primary and secondary information on input addresses. Then, if no match is made, DPV will attempt to validate using the primary information only. Turning off this option will reduce the number of look-ups to DPV files and may increase processing. Select one of the following:

  • Y — Perform DPV validation using secondary address information.

  • N — No, do not perform DPV validation using secondary address information. Selecting this value will generate a non-CASS certified configuration.

  • Blank — Default is Y.

NOTE: If you select N, you will generate a non-CASS-certified configuration. No USPS Form 3553 is generated.

26

Optional. Specify a code to indicate whether to determine if an input address is a Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA).

  • Y — Yes, perform CMRA lookup.

  • N — No, do not perform CMRA lookup.

  • Y — Yes, perform PBSA lookup.

  • N — No, do not perform PBSA lookup.

  • Blank — Do not perform PBSA lookup.

NOTE: If you specify "Y", you must define a location for the DPV PBSA Flag in positions 32-34 of the DPVOUT parameter (location on the output record for a 1-character code indicating whether this address was found in the PBSA table).
