The maximum number of addresses that AutoCompleteLoqate should return. The default is 10.


Reduces input time by up to 80% for 240 countries by using data in the form of an index file. When you conduct a search, the Loqate Engine will first look for the corresponding index. If present, the method will attempt to instantly return a list of candidate addresses. If the index is not present, or if the index does not return any results, the original search process will be triggered.
Note: Powersearch can be performed when there are two and only two fields in the input file: the Country field and any one of the AddressLine fields. If you select this option and your input file contains additional fields, the original search process will automatically be triggered.

To conduct its search, Auto Complete indexes use up to the first 10 characters for searches within the United States and up to the first 15 characters for searches within all other eligible countries. Spaces and punctuation are not factored into this count.

Powersearch cannot be used for the following countries: Botswana, Ethiopia, India, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and San Marino.
Note: You must have a valid license for Powersearch processing. If you select this option but are not licensed for Powersearch, or if your license has expired, you will receive an error.

Selected by default. Pre-process the input and remove duplicates that occur in a single field.

Selected by default. Post-process the output from verification and remove duplicates from non-verified fields.
