Hello,

I must be missing something. 

I have a buildings layer with address (house number, street name, street type, etc.) all in one field named "Address".  City and zip are in separate fields.  I am trying to create a Address locator using 'US Address - Single House', but when I do so it seems to want to have the address separated in multiple fields (e.g. House Number, Street Name, etc.).  I dont want to try to parse my data out.  I tried specifying the single 'Address' field for all these related fields, but that does not seem to work.

How do I create an Address Locator based on a single 'Address' field?

Thanks
Neal

I think you'll want to use the "General -  Single Field" type of locator.  It asks for a single Keyfield and you can store your address there or the building name.

You can try to use the Standardize addresses tool to split your address data into multiple fields.
