Address Code Lookup

Address Code Lookup

The Address Verification reference data includes unique values that represent part of an address or the complete address. To return the value for an address, or to retrieve the address information that a key value represents, configure Informatica Address Verification in address code lookup mode.
In address code lookup mode, you can retrieve address information for the following countries:
  • Austria
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Serbia
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom
To configure Informatica Address Verification in address code lookup mode, specify the address code for the information that you require in the
file. When you submit the address code lookup values for processing, Address Verification returns the partial or complete addresses that correspond to the values. You must also install the corresponding address code lookup (
) database and add the required unlock codes to

Address Codes in InputData.xml

The following table lists the address codes that you can add to
Address Code
An Austria address has a PAC_ID value when the address receives mail at another address at the same location.
The PAC_ID value is the Postal Address Code (PAC) value of the corresponding address that receives the mail.
For example, a PAC_ID value of 100004254 returns the following address:
Neue-Welt-Gasse 2 8010 Graz AUT
The address that gives access to the mailbox is the Ident address.
The Amtliche Gemeindeschlüssel (AGS) is a variable length value that uniquely identifies a municipality in Germany. An AGS value might return more than one level of municipality information.

Transaction Key and Record ID Values in Address Code Lookup Mode

If the address records in your organization contain transaction keys or record ID values, you can use the values in address code lookup mode. When you include the values in the input addresses, Address Verification passes the values through to the output addresses. You can then enter a transaction key or record ID value in address code lookup mode to query the output addresses and to return the address that matches the value.
Use the Key element to enter the values. The Key element has the types TRANSACTION_KEY and RECORD_ID.
