MTE Auto Resolution is a feature of pre-processor that attempts to resolve MTE records using a pre-defined set of customer name patterns.


  • Primary and Alias Individual Resolutions: MTE resolution requires a primary resolution before any other records can be assigned. The primary resolution is designated using the asterisk (*) symbol. Auto resolution will assign the primary resolution to the current AccuAccount customer if one exists and it is an individual, or first individual record from the import files. An individual is defined as a customer name that does not match either the entity or name line 2 lists. Once a primary resolution exists, all other entities are resolved as alias records. An alias is designated using the dash (-) symbol.​
  • Entity Resolutions: If a customer name matches a name pattern from the entity list, pre-processor will resolve the MTE record using the next available appendage number. This will create a separate customer page for the entity. Auto resolutions for entities are designated by a numerical appendage which is calculated by finding the highest current numerical resolutions and adding one to that number. While manual resolutions allow for non-numeric resolutions, auto resolution will only be numeric.​
  • Name Line 2 Resolutions: If a customer name matches a name pattern from the name line 2 list, pre-processor will resolve the MTE record using the tilde (~) symbol. This will assign the customer name to the name line 2 field of the primary customer. In the event that a name line 2 resolution already exists, the MTE will be resolved as an alias using the dash (-)
  • Logging: Auto resolutions as well as failed auto resolutions are logged to the standard logs table in the AccuAccount database.
  • Limitations:
    • Auto resolution cannot occur if the existing AccuAccount customer is not an individual
    • Auto resolution cannot occur if the primary MTE resolution is not an individual
    • Auto resolution cannot occur if no MTE names are individuals (a primary individual is required)
    • Spelling differences for entities will result in multiple customers (“company name llc” and “company name, llc”)​


MTE auto-resolution is enabled in the pre-processor configuration tool on the MTE tab.

  1. Check the box for "Enable Auto Resolution". (This option is disabled if MTE processing is not enabled based on the customer key and customer number settings on the advanced tab)
  2. Add and remove name patterns from the entity and name line 2 lists. These lists are pre populated but name patterns can be added and removed.
    • To add name patterns, type the new pattern in the empty cell at the bottom of the list.
    • To delete name patterns, select the cell to delete and press the delete key on you keyboard.
