The second step to creating a GeoTAX job is to define the physical attributes of your input and output files. You define some or all of the following:

  • GTBMPRM—This required file contains all the parameter records for your job.

  • GTBMNAM—This required file contains your input name-and-address records.

  • GTBMCOK—This required file contains all of the records matched by GeoTAX.

  • GTBMNCO—This optional file contains all of the records that GeoTAX could not match.

  • GTBMPLC—This optional file contains records that are coded with a non-zero/non-space place code.

  • GTBMARC—This optional file contains data you specify to use as input to a geographic mapping application, such as ESRI’s ArcView or MapInfo.

Define each of these files by creating a FILEDF parameter record as shown in the highlighted area in the example below. Remember each input and output file requires a separate FILEDF parameter record.
