Optional. Use DPVOUT to post all answers from DPV and RDI processing. The DPV and RDI processing add-on options must be licensed in order for this parameter to properly function. For more information on DPV and RDI, refer to Chapter 7, Using Delivery Point Validation in yourCODE-1 Plus User's Guide.

DPV Footnote Codes are 2-character, USPS-defined codes that represent the changes that were made to the input address during the matching process. Up to 10 of these codes can be stored by CODE-1 Plus for each record. Even if your address is not presented for DPV processing, those footnote codes pertaining to the match to the ZIP + 4 database will be returned.

Note: iUSPS CASS regulations require Delivery Point Validation (DPV) processing for CASS certification and to generate the USPS Form 3553 (USPS CASS Summary Report).

  • N — No Delivery Point Validation.

  • Y — Delivery Point validated. Primary number valid and second number (when present) valid.

  • S — Valid primary number; but secondary number (primary for Rural Route) present and is not confirmed. Also, can indicate that the house range contained a single trailing alpha that was dropped to attempt Delivery Point Validation.

Location for DPV CMRA Flag

Optional. In this field, you indicate the location on the output record for a 1-character Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) Flag (indicates a private business that acts as a mail-receiving agent for specific clients). This field contains the results of the call to the DPV CMRA Hash Table (dph.hsc):

  • Y — Yes, address was found in CMRA table.

  • N — No, address was not found in CMRA table.

  • Blank — Address not presented to hash table.

NOTE: The CMRA lookup automatically occurs when the DPV return code is Y or S, unless otherwise specified in the DPVIN parameter record.

16-18

Location for DPV False/Positive Flag

Optional. If the DPV return code is N, CODE-1 Plus automatically begins a false/positive look-up. In this field, you indicate the location on the output record for a 1-character False/Positive Flag:

  • N — Not false.

  • Blank — Not presented.

24-26

Location for No Stat Flag

Optional. A 1-character code indicating the presence of statistics for this address. The value Y indicates that the address is not a valid delivery address even though it has been validated by DPV. One of the following codes is stored:

  • Y — Found match to 'No Stat' DPV hash table.

  • N — No match found to "No stat" DPV hash table.

  • Blank — Not presented.

NOTE: If this option is present in the DPVOUT parameter, the DPV DLL looks up addresses in the No Stat table. If this position is blank, CODE-1 Plus does not look up address in the No Stat table.

28-30

Location for Vacant Table Flag

Optional. Location on the output record for a 1-character code indicating whether this address was found in the Vacant table. One of the following codes is stored:

  • Y — The address has been vacant for at least last 90 days.

  • N — The address is not vacant.

  • Blank — Not presented

NOTE: If this option is present in the DPVOUT parameter, the DPV DLL performs an address search in the Vacant table; otherwise, for performance reasons, DPV does not look up the address in the Vacant table.

32-34

Location for DPV PBSA Flag

Optional. Location on the output record for the one-character code that indicates whether this address was found in the PBSA table. One of the following codes is stored:

  • Blank — Not presented

NOTE: If you specify a location for the DPV PBSA Flag, you must specify "Y" in position 28 of the DPVIN parameter (PBSA Lookup). DPVIN position 28 determines whether CODE-1 Plus uses the PBSA Table to return the PBSA result in output. If you specify a value for DPVOUT positions 32-34 and do not specify "Y" in position 28 of the DPVIN parameter (PBSA Lookup), a parameter error occurs.

  • R — Return Residential Delivery Points.

  • M — Return M for Mixed Business and Residential Delivery Points.
