SAS Proc for US Address Validation.

I have a list of US addresses that I need to validate against USPS address database.  Is there any SAS procedure that I can use and run my address list thru this proc? 

Thank you.

The closest thing I can think of would be to use Proc Geocode against the TIGRE data available from the Census Bureau. The resulting matched set would indicate the level of match. If the result of the match is Street then that would likely be valid.

But there is going to be a time lag involved as TIGRE isn't updated frequently.

Good luck.
