On Windows:

You can launch the interactive matcher and inquiry functions in two ways:

  • Select Start > Programs > Precisely > GeoTAX > GeoTAX Matcher.

  • In a DOS Command Line window, change the directory to the bin folder of the GeoTAX install directory. Type GTXMAT for Matcher at the command prompt.

Once the Matcher launches, the matching screen opens (see Figure 1).

On UNIX/Linux:

To launch the interactive matcher:

  1. Source the setup file.

  2. Execute the runonline command.

On z/OS:

After the CICS installation completes (see CICS Installation), transaction G1GT brings up the interactive matcher in the CICS region.

Description

Address Input Fields

Firm Name

Configuration Fields - the following fields can be changed using the function keys/commands provided in the next section.

Mode

Determines the leniency used to make a match between your input and the reference database:

•EXACT - Requires a very tight match and generates the fewest match candidates. Ensure that your input is very clean, i.e., free of misspellings and contains all address fields.

•CLOSE (default) - Requires a close match and generates a moderate number of match candidates.

•RELAX - Allows a loose match and generates the most match candidates. Use this mode if you are not confident that your input is clean. This is the only mode that does not respect the street parity when making an address match.

Offset

Indicates street offset setting: 0, 20, 40 (default), 60

Squz

Indicates if Lat/Long Squeeze is enabled: Y (default) or N

GTXKey

Indicates the cross-reference file for matching: TXW or NVT.
