How to understand why an alpha-numeric apartment is placed in Extra Information when presented in front of house number using Canadian CODE-1 Plus

UPDATED: October 13, 2017


In the following example, Canadian CODE-1 Plus will place A3 in the Extra Information field:

   Address 1: A3-4725 DORCHESTER RD

  City, Prov: NIAGARA FALLS ON
 Postal Code: L2E0A8
 
   Matched Addr: 4725 DORCHESTER RD
 
 City, Prov PCD: NIAGARA FALLS ON  L2E 0A8
 --------------------------------------------------------
     
   First four multiple PCDs:
          Extra Information: A3

In this example, ‘A3’ will be included in extra information, and the record will be correctable because when entered as 'A3-4725', Canadian CODE-1 Plus is looking for a numeric apartment number and a civic number.  Currently, the process of identifying 'A3-4725' is in program, not controlled by the database.   If it was numeric data, it would definitely be identified as apartment information.  The process is designed to recognize numeric data for apartment information, not non-numeric.   For non-numeric apartments, it is strongly suggested that a unit identifier be used so the process can properly identify the ‘A3’ as apartment information.  That will process the record as valid.  The process will only identify the A3 as potential apartment information (due to it being non-numeric data) if it is entered on a separate address line.
