Output Columns

MelissaAddressKey
This is a globally unique and persistent key for the location, even if parts of the address change. When an address is fully validated this field returns a 10-digit proprietary key for the address. With AddressKey (US and Canada only), if an address zip code changes, the AddressKey would also change. Melissa Address Key (MAK) is independent and will not change. This makes MAK a good way to permanently identify and locate addresses. Once you have a MAK it can be used as an input in most Melissa services and thus is a good tool for deduping. Currently available for US, CA, GB, IT, SI, PT, FR, AU, SG, NL, VN, BM, and TR with many more countries planned for the future.
MelissaAddressKeyBase
Every full address has its own Melissa Address Key (MAK). If that address is a suites or apartment, we will also return a Melissa Address Key Base (BaseMAK) that corresponds to the overall building. This provides a link between all the individual MAK addresses that belong to the same building. This field also returns a 10-digit proprietary key. Note, if we can validate the address to the building but not the suite, we can return just the BaseMAK. Currently available for countries that have support for MelissaAddressKey.
DeliveryIndicator
This field returns a one character code that indicates if the address is a residence (R), business (B), or unknown (U). It is not available for all countries. Currently, it is available only for the US but more countries are planned for future inclusion.
PostalCodeType
This is a country dependent field. This field returns an identifier that represents the type of postal code returned. Currently only the US uses this field.
Code Definition
P PO Box Postal Code
U Unique Postal Code usually assigned to a large organization or government institution.
M Military Postal Code
Empty Regular postal code
SubPremiseLevel
This is a secondary piece of subpremise information used to describe a more generic division of the subpremise. For example, if you have an address like “1123 Market Way, Floor 12 Apt 25A” then the Subpremises will be “Apt 25A” and the SubPremiseLevel will be “Floor 12”. This value is not widely used in official address data.
SubPremiseLevelType and SubPremiseLevelNumber make up the SubPremiseLevel. In our example, the SubPremiseLevelType is “Floor” and the SubPremiseLevelNumber is “12”.
SubBuilding
This value describes a smaller division of the building. For example, if an address has a building name that is a part of a larger set of buildings, then the subbuilding may be populated.
SubBuildingType and SubBuildingNumber make up the parts of SubBuilding.
UTC
Returns the Coordinated Universal Time number in format of UTC+#. Note that there are timezones that are not whole hours only, like UTC+9:30.
DST
Returns a Y or a N based on if the country or area of the input observes daylight savings time. Note that the value returned by the UTC output does not change based on whether the country/area is currently in daylight savings time for not. We will only return the standard timezone and this flag to indicate is daylight savings is observed.
CensusKey
This is a country dependent field. It is designed to return a code that correspond to the census division information for a country. Currently, this field is only returned for the US.
Code Definition
US The CensusKey for the US is a 15 or 16 digit code that is made up of the following components: FIPS Code, Census Tract, Census Block, and CensusBlockGroup if it exists
PostOfficeLocation
This field, if available for a country, returns the value that is associated to the location of the post office in relation to the address. This value may or may not be used in the official mailing address for the country in question. Currently, these are the countries we will return the data for: Serbia and Slovakia.
Code Definition
Serbia The PostOfficeLocation contains the old 5 digit postal number and name. The postal code field will contain the new 6 digit PAK number.
Slovakia The PostOfficeLocation returns the name of the post office location if it is not the same as the delivery address locality.
DeliveryPointSuffix
This is a country dependent field. This field returns an identifier that represents asuffix code usually tied to a delivery point. For US This returns the 2 digit delivery point assigned by the USPS to an DPV validated address. For GB This is a 2 character (first is numerical, 2nd character is alphabetic) that is assigned by Royal Mail. When added to the postal code, this allows each live delivery point to be uniquely identified.

Extra US Only

Extras option
This element is usually not populated but is reserved to be able to return less used fields if the user requests. Currently, we are using this to return some US only fields. This output requires an additional output Destination component to be added to the project. If Extras is ON, we can return additional outputs. These outputs are presented in a different format. They will look like this below.
