tQASAddressIncomplete properties

Component family

Data Quality



tQASAddressIncomplete filters addresses. It iterates on each row and reads all input addresses against the QuickAddress data.

tQASAddressIncomplete uses QAS Pro Web 5.16 on Linux and 5.86 on Windows.


tQASAddressIncomplete can give two output flows: Incomplete and Reject. Incomplete collects all addresses that match to a partially-complete address in the QuickAddress data. Reject collects all addresses that match to several possible results or do not match to deliverable results in the QuickAddress data.

Basic settings


Enter the URL for the QuickAdress XML document (provided by Experian QAS).



Select from the list the country corresponding to your input addresses.


Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.



Built-in: You create the schema and store it locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.



Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and job designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.


Column to analyze
