Stelink_ field added during validation

A new field is created automatically during validation named stelink_.
Stelink_ is a Character type field with a width of 2.

There are two possible values that will fill into that field:

A = SuiteLink Record Match
Business address improved. The input record matched to a record in the master file. An improved business address could be furnished.

00 = No Match
Business address not improved. The input record COULD NOT BE matched to a record in the master file. An improved business address could not be furnished (This occurs when the address is found in the Suitelink database, but the company name did not have a match)

The SuiteLink Product will enable customers to provide improved business addressing information by adding known secondary (suite) information to business addresses, which will allow USPS delivery sequencing where it would not otherwise be possible. Records that have been processed through CASS Certified™ ZIP + 4® address matching software and identified as highrise defaults are potential candidates for SuiteLink processing.

If your address is determined to be a highrise address and you have a company field in your database with company information, validation with Suitelink can potentially add missing suite numbers to your addresses.
