Returned DSL Report Specifications

Column A: IDNUM represents an arbitrary unique identification number for each listing in our Denied Party List (DPL). If you click them, it will take you to a detailed view of the particular listing in our DPL. You will need a username and password -- please contact Customer Support if you do not already have credentials.

Column B: Party is the data in the DPL that matched your data. It should correspond to the name, or the street1 field.

Column C: List Code indicates the source list code.

Column D: Percentage represents the percentage of words involved with the match that were not on your common word list.

  • So "Smith, Robert Tomas" vs. "Smith, Jack Tomas" means 4 words (the smiths) involved with the match, and 6 words total = 66%
  • Or "Amalgamated, Inc." vs. "Amalgamated Chemicals" assuming "Inc" is a common word means 2 words (the Amalgamateds) out of 3 total words or 66% (one word match allowed due to only 1 word on left hand side)
  • Or "North American Mercantile Savings and Loan" vs. "Association of North American Business Interests", assuming "and" and "of" are common - 4 words (norths and americans) out of 10 or 40% match.And so on.

Using this percentage helps to weed out matches that do have 2 words in common, but are not very closely related.

Column E: ID represents an arbitrary unique identification number for each listing in your Dynamic Screening List (DSL). If you click them, it will take you to a detailed view of the particular listing in your DSL. You will need a username and password -- please contact Customer Support if you do not already have credentials.

Columns F-I: Name, City, Country, Code are all values from the listing in your DSL.

Column J: Match Type denotes what type of match was made. This will either be N for Name or A for Address.
