The missing and wrong first letter feature enables GeoTAX to look for the correct first letter of a street address if the first letter is missing or incorrect. GeoTAX searches through the alphabet looking for possible correct first letters to complete the street address.

The feature is disabled by default and cannot be enabled in Exact mode.

Use the following to enable this feature:

Batch Processing

Use the First Letter Expanded Option field in the CONFIG parameter card.

Integrator Series API

Use the cFirstLetterOpt element in the GTXINPUT parameter structure prior to calling GTXMatchAddress.

Callable Functions

Use MCA-FIRST-LETTER-EXP-OPT in the Matcher Control Area prior to Calling the GTMATCH program.
