1 Get Advanced Search Lookups

1.1 Overview

This service is used to find certain request input element values for Advanced Company Search and Advanced Person Search (ex. country codes, stock exchanges, Hoover's industry codes). The specific elements are defined in each of the service operations. These values are relatively static, so caching this data can and should be taken advantage of with weekly refreshes as the suggested update timeframe. Do not make a call to this service every time you call the two Advanced Searches, as this call counts towards your overall total and it is a large amount of data.
