Click on a layout to display the Layout Properties pane, which shows summary information about the layout.
Each installed dataset has a default layout associated with it. You can modify this layout, but Experian recommend that you leave it as it is and create a new layout if you want different settings. You will want to create more than one layout for each dataset if you intend to paste addresses into multiple applications which require different address formats.
To create a new layout, follow these steps:
The new layout will have the same settings as this dataset's default layout.
Now that you have created a new layout, you can specify exactly how you want your addresses to look using the Address Format pane. To view this pane, expand your new layout (by clicking on the plus sign next to the layout name), and select Address format from the list that appears.
The Address Format settings will initially be the same as the default layout. The pane will contain the address elements for the dataset you chose for your layout. From here, you can use the functions on the pane to fully customize the address elements you want your layout to return. For more information see the Configuration Editor Help program.
If you have one or more DataPlus sets, you must specify the format of the returned information by clicking on DataPlus in the list under your layout name. This window is structured in a similar way to the Address Format window. For more information see the Configuration Editor Help program.
Click the Save button on the toolbar at any time to save the changes you have made to your layout. Alternatively, press CTRL+S, or click Save on the File menu.
