Element Positions

Element Positions

The following fields return a 20-character code in which each character refers to a different address data element:
  • Address Resolution Code
  • Element Input Status
  • Element Relevance
  • Element Result Status
  • Extended Element Result Status
When you read the output codes on one of the fields, you must know the element that each character refers to. The 20 characters represent the status of ten elements. Each element has two code values.
For each element, level 1 indicates the status of the first item and level 2 summarizes the status of any additional item. For example, if the input address contains 3 levels of locality, the value at position 3 points to locality 1, whereas the value at position 4 summarizes the assessment of locality 2 and locality 3.
