PO Box address not returning record type P

Issue

The below address returns the record type field to be ‘S’ indicating it is a Street.

11506 Cornhusker Rd PO BOX 807
Alma, NE, 68920

Should it not return the record type to be ‘P’ indicating it to be a PO Box?

Cause

The address input has 2 different addresses. GeoStan attempts to match to the first address line it receives as input.

you will need to set the property

GS_FIND_PREFER_POBOX

This find property is used with GsFindWithProps. Using this property, GeoStan will first attempt to match to the P.O. Box address. If GeoStan cannot find a match, it then attempts to match to the street address. The default property setting for Geostan is

GS_PREFER_STREET

If you do not specify a preference for a P.O. Box or street address, GeoStan attempts to match to the first address line it receives as input.
