The geocoder returns match codes indicating the address portions that matched or did not match to the database.

If the geocoder cannot make a match, the match code begins with "E" and the remaining digits indicate why the address did not match. For a description of the "Ennn" codes, see "Ennn" Match Codes for No Match. The digits do not specifically refer to which address elements did not match, but rather why the address did not match.

The following table contains the match code values. For a description of the hex digits for the match codes, see Definitions for 1st-3rd hex digit match code values.

Code

Description

Ahhh

Same as Shhh, but indicates match to an alias name record or an alternate record.

Chh

The street address did not match, but the geocoder located a street segment based on the input ZIP Code or city.

D00

Matched to a small town with P.O. Box or General Delivery only.

Ghhh

Matched to an auxiliary file.

Hhhh

The house number was changed.

Jhhh

Matched to a user-defined dictionary.

Nxx

Matched to the nearest address. Used with reverse geocoding. The following are the only values for N:

NS0
Nearest street center match (nearest street segment interpolated)
NS1
Nearest unranged street segment
NP0
Nearest point address
NX0
Nearest intersection

P

Successful reverse APN lookup.

Qhhh

Matched to USPS range records with unique ZIP Codes. CASS rules prohibit altering an input ZIP if it matches a unique ZIP Code value.

Rhhh

Matched to a ranged address.

Shhh

Matched to USPS data. This is considered the best address match, because it matched directly against the USPS list of addresses. S is returned for a small number of addresses when the matched address has a blank ZIP + 4.

Thhh

Matched to a street segment record.

Uhhh

Matched to USPS data but cannot resolve the ZIP + 4 code without the firm name or other information. CASS mode returns an E023 (multiple match) error code.

Vhhh Matched to MLD and MLDR using Key Lookup.

Xhhh

Matched to an intersection of two streets, for example, "Clay St & Michigan Ave." The first hex digit refers to the last line information, the second hex digit refers to the first street in the intersection, and the third hex digit refers to the second street in the intersection.

Note: The USPS does not allow intersections as a valid deliverable address.

Yhhh

Same as Xhhh, but an alias name record was used for one or both streets.

Z1 No address given, but verified the provided ZIP Code .
1 Zh may be returned if Output corrected last line is enabled. FIND_CORRECT_LASTLINE is set to true.
