|ActiveGender COM Component|
ActiveGender accepts free-form names and then automatically splits them into standard components: Prefix, First, Middle, Last and Suffix no matter what the original format. Next, using a 100,000 Name Dictionary in combination with an 8,000 word proprietary Company Dictionary, the gender is determined with unmatched accuracy. For special cases, such as an all-girl school, you can easily override the built-in system dictionaries.
ActiveGender can process all styles of names including inverse, natural order, hyphenated and multi-part last names. Multiple names in the same field and companies can be easily separated providing you with powerful formatting control.
As a bonus, when you combine ActiveGender with our ActiveAddress product, you can even tackle the impossible task of identifying data that has been entered free-form. The names, addresses and C/S/Z either “float” from field to field or you are just not sure what's in the field. First, examine the Address_Quality flag returned from ActiveAddress. If set to High or Medium, it's almost certainly an address. If set to Low, submit the string to ActiveGender for name verification. Using these techniques you’ll always be certain of the data you're working with.
