Overview
The Directory Listing Inquiry allows the CLEC to access the listing data belonging to an end user.


When to Use
The Directory Listing Inquiry allows the CLEC to view both simple and complex listings before making changes to an end user's listing. The Directory Listing inquiry provides a search of the Verizon listing databases using a variety of selection criteria. It offers structure information for caption listings, Alpha/Numeric Listing Identifier Codes (ALI) and offers refining choices using "Package ID" and "Listing ID" fields.


How to Complete
The required fields for submission of this inquiry is the "Style Code" and "State/Province."

When the correct spelling of the listing is known and the listing contains more than 12 characters, enter the first 12 characters of the listing being requested, excluding any spaces and special characters, in the "Finding Name" field.

If the listing contains 12 characters or less, enter the complete listing, excluding any spaces and special characters, in the "Finding Name" field.

When the exact listing or correct spelling is not known, enter from 4 to 11 characters followed by a % in the "Finding Name" field. This method cannot be used for listings of less than 5 characters.
