Output Standardization

Output Standardization

When you validate an address, Address Verification returns the output that meets the specifications from the local postal authorities and the Universal Postal Union (UPU). You can modify the output by configuring the address element standardization options in the
Parameters.xml
file.
The address element-level standardizations include options for casing, maximum item count, and maximum string length. If you do not want to configure the attributes at the address element level, you can set global values for the attributes. If you configure global and address-element level values for
MaxLines
,
MaxLength
, and
GlobalCasing
attributes, the address element-level values override the global settings.
The following table describes the
MaxLines
,
MaxLength
, and
GlobalCasing
attributes and supported values for different address elements:

GlobalCasing Values

At the address element level, you can set one of the following values for the
GlobalCasing
attribute:
NATIVE
Returns the result output in the same casing that the data in the reference address database uses.
UPPER
Returns the result output in uppercase letters.
LOWER
Returns the result output in lowercase letters.
MIXED
Returns the result output in mixed case and according to any country-specific casing guidelines.
NOCHANGE
Returns the output address without any case standardization.
The NOCHANGE setting does not specify that the output address preserves the casing of the input address. Rather, the NOCHANGE setting specifies that the Address Verification engine does not alter the casing style. If Address Verification corrects the address from the reference data, the output address uses the casing style that the reference data uses.
