Element Abbreviation

Element Abbreviation

Determines if the transformation returns the abbreviated form of an address element. You can set the transformation to return the abbreviated form if the address reference data contains abbreviations.
For example, the United States Postal Service (USPS) maintains short and long forms of many street and locality names. The short form of
HUNTSVILLE BROWNSFERRY RD
is
HSV BROWNS FRY RD
. You can select the Element Abbreviation property when the street or locality values exceed the maximum field length that the USPS specifies.
The option is cleared by default. Set the property to ON to return the abbreviated address values. The property returns the abbreviated locality name and locality code when you use the transformation in batch mode. The property returns the abbreviated street name, locality name, and locality code when you use the transformation in certified mode.
