The output section consists of various sets of return fields. Output Name returns the concatenated and or parsed Name parts of the input Name. Output Address returns the new change of address data or for non-moves, standardized address information. Additional Output Columns can be used to store additional address info and parsed address parts.
New field names can be created by typing the name into the box.

Additional Output Columns
The Next button navigates to page 2 of the Output Columns tab. Additional Output Columns allow you to map fields for returned data that goes beyond the standard change-of-address information.
- Map the field that will receive the updated or standardized suite information, if any.
- Private Mailbox
- Map the field that will receive the private mailbox number. This field is populated if the primary address was identified as a Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) and the secondary address information is present. This field would also be populated if the secondary address information contains the string "PMB," thus identifying the address as a private mailbox.
- Plus 4
- Map the field that will receive the four-digit extension from the ZIP + 4.
- Delivery Point & Check Digit
- The delivery point is a two-digit number that combined with the ZIP + 4, generates a unique number for each address in that ZIP + 4. This number is used to generate barcodes, so if you plan you use this address data for commercial mailing, it would be necessary to map an output field for this information. Typically, the Delivery Point Code will be the last two digits of the street number, but the most accurate way to obtain this information is by submitting the address for Address Verification and storing the Delivery Point code for future use.
- The delivery point check digit is an additional one-digit number that is combined with the Delivery Point when generating barcodes for mailing.
- Carrier Route
- The Carrier Route is a four-character code that indicates which mail carrier delivers to the input address. The first character of this Carrier Route is always alphabetic and the last three characters are numeric. For example, "R001" or "C027" would be typical carrier routes. The alphabetic letter indicates the type of delivery associated with this address.
- B = PO Box
- C = City Delivery
- G = General Delivery
- H = Highway Contract
- R = Rural Route
- Map the field that will receive the Urbanization name, if any. See the entry for the Urbanization input field for more information on this field.
- City Abbreviation
- If the name returned by the City field is longer than 13 letters, the City Abbreviation field will return the official abbreviation the Post OfficeTM has associated with that city or municipality name. For example, the City Abbreviation field will return the abbreviation "Rcho Sta Marg" for "Rancho Santa Margarita." If the value returned by the City field is 13 letters or shorter, the City Abbreviation field will return the full city or municipality name.
- Returns the full name of the country in which the address is located. Currently, only Canada and the United States are supported, although SmartMover Web Service will only update the U.S. addresses.
- Country Abbreviation
- Returns the standard abbreviation of the country in which the address is located. Currently, only Canada and the United States are supported, although SmartMover Web Service will only update the U.S. addresses.

Parsed Address Columns
These fields return street address information, split into its components.
- Address Range

- This field returns only the street name, minus the suffixes or directionals. For "SW Main Street," this would return "Main."
- This field returns the standard abbreviations for the street types: "RD," "ST," "AVE," "BLVD," etc.
