What Does it Mean to Append a File?

Category: Common Data Append Questions

Appending a File  refers to a process that involves adding new data elements to an existing database. An example of a common file append (or data append) would be the enhancement of a company’s customer files. Companies often collect basic information on their clients such as phone numbers, emails, or addresses. A data append takes the information they have, matches it against a larger database of business data, allowing the desired missing data fields to be added.

The NAICS Association offers a wide range of Data Append Services including Phone Appends, NAICS & SIC Code Appends, and More.
