Welcome to the CDX Technologies December
Best wishes for the New Year from
the team at CDX Technologies. In this issue we
cover the CDXZip4 formula available in all CDXZipStream
Here is a link to our latest Blog posting:
CDXZip4 - Correct Addresses with Zip+4 in CDXZipStream
In addition to supporting 5 digit Zip Codes all
CDXZipStream versions have a built-in function for Zip+4 address
correction CDXZip4. This will allow you to get an exact zip
code for any US address, correct errors and provide a USPS
standardized output. The CDXZip4 function is accessed by
right-clicking on any cell in your worksheet. Then click on
"CDXZipStream Functions", select "CDXGeodata
Functions" and "Insert CDXZip4 function".
Addresses can be entered in single or multi-line
address formats. As with other CDXZipStream functions,
text or cell references can be entered. Requests are checked
against a USPS database to determine the correct format and if it is
deliverable. Addresses not validated with return
"Unknown or Invalid Address". The results should
closely match the individual results returned at the USPS
To gain access to this functionality you must have a CDXGeoData
API Key which is not part of the CDXZipStream
license. Tokens are used to access CDXGeoData with different
levels for each service request. This Zip+4 address
verification will require 5 tokens per request.
A free CDXGeodata API key to try out the service can
be obtained on our website.
Click the "Generate API Key" button to get your free key.
The free key can be used for evaluation, development or non-profit
use and is good for 24 hours. Users are allowed to generate one free
key each day. The key can also be used to evaluate our other CDXGeodata
For higher usage levels and commercial use purchase

A single API key can be used for all the CDXZipStream licenses in
your account. The key is licensed by request and not users.The tokens
are available for up to one year and include an additional
development API key with 1000 tokens per month. The development key
will reset each month. No automatic rebilling.
CDXZipStream licensed users can request a development
account by contacting email@example.com.
