The NumericRangeExpansion element specifies how you want Informatica Address Verification to handle number ranges in the addresses. Find the NumericRangeExpansion element under
To handle the number ranges, configure the following properties present in the NumericRangeExpansion element:
The RangesToExpand property specifies whether to expand house number ranges in address suggestions from countries for which individual house numbers are available in the reference data. The RangeExpansionType property specifies the scope of range expansion in suggestion lists. The options apply in quick capture and interactive modes.
If you set the RangesToExpand property to All, Address Verification expands the house number ranges whenever individual house numbers are available. If you set the RangesToExpand property to OnlyValid, 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 property to None. The default value is None. When the complete list of house numbers is not available in the reference address database, the OnlyValid setting works the same way as None.
If you set the RangeExpansionType property to Full, Address Verification might expand all the items in the suggestion list. If you set the RangeExpansionType property to Flexible, Address Verification might expand only the initial items in the suggestion list. Address Verification retains the items at the end of the list as ranges if the number of items exceeds the maximum result count.
You can use the RangesToExpand property in conjunction with the RangeExpansionType property to achieve the optimum results. If you set the RangeExpansionType property to Flexible, Address Verification expands 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 maximum result count value. Therefore, when you set the RangeExpansionType property to Flexible, 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 RangeExpansionType.
Address Verification ignores the RangeExpansionType property when the RangesToExpand property value is None.
