I am trying to geocode about 1,000 addresses. I've tried using multiple address locators and composites, but the results for this set of data continues to come up completed with 0% Matched, 0% Tied, 0% Unmatched, and average speed n/a. I've done small tests against the address locators using several addresses with which I am familiar, and they've been able to geocode those which leads me to believe it is a problem with the dataset. Has anyone else come across this problem?
If you could post a sample address that you are trying to geocode that may be helpful. Things I do to make my data 'cleaner' for the geocoder using excel is to trim the sheet (removes leading and trailing spaces), copy the cells and paste the VALUES so to remove all formulas, make sure there are no blank records separating my data and make everything uppercase. Taking out all special characters is something also I consider.
It is strange that you get 0% matched, tied, and unmatched. I would copy all addresses to a new csv or excel workbook and try again.
If you still can't get your data to geocode, you may want to rebuild your locator.
