I have an address locator for our center line that works wonderful.  However, I am needing to update it.  I made a copy just in case.  I am building the new locator with same exact inputs, settings etc and the locator is not working properly.  I go to search for address using the find tool or the geocoding toolbar, and it says address not found.  I am using 10.2.  Is there an environment setting that i need to change?  Please note the reference data is the same data.

The help tip worked great.  Went from no matches to only 17 unmatched out of 371 and those were bad address inputs.

I just got bitten by that "gotcha" the other day; created a new locator (10.5.1) for a quick project that wouldn't return anything.  Pulled my hair out and ran the addresses against an existing one.  Saw your post and just remembered....
