Address Code LookUp

Address Code LookUp

In the address code lookup (ADDRESSCODELOOKUP) process mode, you can enter an address code and retrieve the corresponding address. Based on the address code you enter and the availability of corresponding reference data, Informatica Address Verification returns full or partial address information. The address code lookup process mode requires a separate unlock code.
In the address code lookup mode, you can retrieve addresses from the following countries:
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Serbia
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom
To retrieve addresses in the address code lookup mode, you must install the corresponding address code lookup (
AC
) database and include the required unlock codes in
SetConfig.xml
. To retrieve address information in the address code lookup mode, you must also specify the address code type in the
InputData.xml
file.
The following table lists the address codes that you can use to retrieve addresses.
