Using the "Convert Secondary to PMB" functionality in Finalist and CODE-1 Plus

Products Affected:  CODE-1 Plus, Finalist
The USPS CASS™ Cycle O plans include new regulations for CMRA/PMB addresses. Input address secondary information must be converted to "PMB" under the following conditions:
 
• A secondary number is present in the returned ZIP + 4 address
• The secondary number does not DPV® confirm
• The primary number (and/or other secondary number) confirms as a CMRA
• The unconfirmed unit designator is not a pound sign (#)
 
This Cycle O rule only applies if the primary address codes to a CMRA.  The conversion to "PMB" feature is optional in the Cycle N release.
 
Example:
 
Input Address:
 
2809 KIRBY RD STE 116 APT 3
MEMPHIS TN 38119
 
Output Address:
 
2809 KIRBY RD STE 116 PMB 3
MEMPHIS TN 38119-8245
 
In this example, "APT" (present as part of the secondary number) is converted to "PMB" per the planned rule.
