The GB PAF Data is updated quarterly. When a new update becomes available, your copy of matchIT will inform you on startup that a new version is available. You will then be able to download the data files to your computer.
Do I have the latest update?
The PAF data is made up of 22 files. The default installation folder for these is “C:Program FilesmatchITv52GBAddressingDataMEDATA”. To check that you have the latest PAF data, you should compare the modified dates of these files (they should have the same modified dates), to the date of the latest GB data update, which is listed on the Latest Dataset page. If the date of your installed PAF data files is similar to (or within two weeks of) the date listed on the Latest Dataset web page, then your data is up to date. If you have multiple versions of the PAF data files, unless you have a specific reason to keep multiple copies, you should disregard all but the latest files.
How do I obtain the latest update?
As mentioned previously, matchIT will allow you to download the updated data files, however if your computer is not connected to the internet, then you will need to contact our support team via email at [email protected] or call 01372 225 904 who will be able to provide a direct download link, or send the data via CD.
