What changes to make in Siebel application so that address [State] field can use more than 10 characters and still perform matching accordingly? (Doc ID 1678640.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel Universal Customer Master - Version 8.1.1.10 [23021] and later
Siebel Data Quality - Version 8.1.1.10 [23021] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Problem:

User would like to use the Siebel BC [Province] field with Siebel UCM and Oracle EDQ for data matching instead of the [State] field.
The reason for using the [Province] field instead of the [State] field is that State is limited to 10 Characters and that is not long enough to hold all the values that are associated to an address,
especially international values.  Thus, customer would like to explore a solution to accomplish using the [Province] field.
