The RangesToExpand and FlexibleRangeExpansion Attributes

The RangesToExpand and FlexibleRangeExpansion Attributes

You can configure the
RangesToExpand
attribute of the
Result
element in
Parameters.xml
to specify whether to expand house number ranges in addresses from countries for which individual house numbers are available. The
FlexibleRangeExpansion
attribute of the
Result
element specifies the scope of range expansion in suggestion lists. If you set the
FlexibleRangeExpansion
attribute to ON, Informatica Address Verification expands only the initial items in the suggestion list. Address Verification retains the ones at the end of the list as ranges if the number of items exceeds the maximum result count.
If you set the
RangesToExpand
attribute to ALL, Address Verification expands the house number ranges whenever individual house numbers are available. If you set
RangesToExpand
to ONLY_WITH_VALID_ITEMS, Address Verification expands the ranges only if the reference data contains the complete list of house numbers within the specified range. You can turn off the range expansion by setting the
RangesToExpand
attribute to NONE. The default value is NONE. When the complete list of house numbers is not available in the reference address database, the ONLY_WITH_VALID_ITEMS setting works the same way as NONE.
You can use the
RangesToExpand
attribute in conjunction with the
FlexibleRangeExpansion
attribute to achieve the optimum results. If you set
FlexibleRangeExpansion
to ON, Address Verification expands only the initial items in a list. Address Verification internal logic decides the number of results to expand and how many to keep as ranges without exceeding the
MaxResultCount
. When you set
FlexibleRangeExpansion
to on, the suggestion list might contain both expanded and unexpanded ranges for house numbers and buildings. The number of results and the nature of the suggestion list depend on the values you specify for
MaxResultCount
,
RangesToExpand
, and
FlexibleRangeExpansion
.
