As mentioned in Extended Match Codes, Extended Match Codes return additional information about any changes in the house number, unit number and unit type fields in the matched address, as well as whether there was address information that was ignored. This additional information is provided in a 3rd hex digit that is appended to match codes for address-level matches only - A, G, H, J, Q, R, S, T or U (see Match Code values).

“Address information ignored” is specified when any of the following conditions apply:

  • The output address has extra information; for example, a mail stop.

  • The output address has a second address line (Address Line 2).

  • The input address is a dual address (two complete addresses in the input address). For example, “4750 Walnut St. P.O Box 50”.

  • The input last line has extra information that is not a city, state or ZIP Code, and is ignored. For example, “Boulder, CO 80301 USA”, where “USA” is ignored when matching.

The following table contains the description of the Extended Match Code 3rd hex digit return values:
