Toolbar Icons New Search Typedown Select Layout Back Single Line Click New Search to clear out an old search and start over. Back takes the search back one level. Typedown and Single Line are search types. Layouts are address formats.
Typedown Searching Typedown: Progressive narrowing of selections. Best when ‘fishing’ for uncertain addresses. ◦Type address element, pick from a list ◦Type another element, pick, etc. ◦Choices narrow down to one address
Demo: Typedown Let’s see a Typedown search. (Page 3 of the user guide.)
Single Line Searching Single Line: S imultaneous search of multiple address elements. Used to format a known address. ◦Type address elements as on an envelope ◦Commas between each element ◦No spacing, no capitalization needed ◦Start with ZIP code
Single Line Examples Address to verify: You type: 146 S. Water Street Kent, OH 44240 13715 Madison Avenue Cleveland, OH (no ZIP) 2112 Murray Avenue Pittsburgh, PA (no ZIP) 44240,146,southwater 146,southwater,kent 13715,madison,cleveland 2112,murray,pittsburgh 2112,murray,pa 2112,mu*,pittsburgh

Review: Key Steps 1. Cursor in the first address field of an INB form address block. 2. Press the appropriate hotkey. 3. Verify address using Typedown or Single Line 4. Accept (QAS Pro populates address fields & minimizes) 5. Save the Banner INB form.
Problems? Do the search over Always start fresh with a New Search Check the address using other resources Did you use the appropriate hotkey? Close and restart QAS Pro You control the Accept button. (It’s OK to ‘play’ with searching.)
Wrong hotkey with GOAMTCH The GOAMTCH hotkey is Alt+G. Using a Alt + A or Alt + R with GOAMTCH produces these errors: ◦City name does not populate ◦Form is saved but error message displays ◦Address data is not saved How to fix it: Update the *PAIDEN address.
Alt+G on wrong forms Using the Alt+G hotkey on forms other than GOAMTCH produces these errors: ◦Address elements appear in the wrong fields ◦Banner error message at lower left ◦Address data is not saved How to fix it: Do-over with correct hotkey.
Tip: Wildcards A Question mark can replace a single character anywhere within an address element: C?lora,MD An Asterisk represents any number of characters at the end of an address element: Bainb*, WA You can combine wildcards in a single search: 201,everhar*,cant?n,OH
Tip: Keywords Using a keyword with the asterisk wildcard If you enter:*university,cleveland All Cleveland addresses with an address element containing the word “university“ are retrieved: Good if you are looking for a type of organization or institution; such as banks, colleges, hospitals, schools, etc.
