Information can Consumer Merge/Purge suppress/purge records by address only, in an 'Individual' Duplicate-Elimination

UPDATED: February 1, 2018


A user had input file records with names and addresses like:
john smith   123 main street  NY12345
sally jones  123 main street  NY12345
 

They also had a purge file with this record
             123 main street  NY12345

They wanted the two input records to be purged because the address was the same as in the purge file record.  But the job was set up for 'Individual' De-duping-
ALGSEL INDV T G
In individual De-duping, the name field is always used, and the blank name in the purge file record will not match to the names john smith or sally jones. 

To do this it might take multiple jobs.  Perhaps running the individual pass the first time, and then run a residential pass and only allow the suppression file(s) to be drivers (so John and Sally don’t match to each other but they will match to the suppression file code and be dropped).
