Determines the type of address analysis that the transformation performs. You can also configure the mode on the
General Settings
tab of the transformation.
The following table describes the Mode menu options and the corresponding parameter values that you can set:
Mode Type
Description
Address code lookup
Returns a partial address or a complete address from the reference data when you provide an address code as an input. Several countries support address codes that represent the locality, street, building, or unique mailbox for an address.
Batch
Performs address validation on the records in a data set. Batch validation focuses on address completeness and deliverability. Batch mode does not return suggestions for poor-quality addresses. Batch is the default mode.
Certified
Performs address validation on the records in a data set to the certification standards of the specified country. The certification standards require that each address identifies a unique mailbox. You can perform certified address validation on addresses in Australia, France, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Country recognition
Determines a destination country for the postal address. The transformation does not perform address validation in country recognition mode.
Interactive
Completes an incomplete valid address. When an incomplete input address matches more than one address in the reference data, the transformation returns all valid addresses up to the limit that the Max Result Count specifies.
Parse
Parses data into address fields. The transformation does not perform address validation in parse mode.
Suggestion list
Returns a list of valid addresses from the reference data when an input address contains fragmentary information. When an address fragment matches more than one address in the reference data, the transformation returns all valid addresses up to the limit that the Max Result Count specifies.
