In previous versions of the software there was an address locator named US Streets that would let you geocode without knowing a zip code (provided you had the street, city and state). Version 10 has reduced the number of locators...and I don't see a comparable locator that doesn't require zips. As I recall, version 9 had a "US Streets" as well as one named "Streets with Zone" (if you had zip codes).
I have a large number of address for Providence, RI, but don't have zip codes; Providence is divided into several zip codes, so I can't just assign a single zip code to my data. Is there a way to geocode my addresses?
When you create a locator using a 10 style you may set the relevant zone field to <None> and not specify it at run time - in your case ZIP. There is an issue with 10.0 which requires that at least one zone field must be non-null, but this is fixed at SP1.
How do I geocode addresses in 10.1 without having zipcode field in address table. I created an address locator in 10.1 with Dual Ranges address locator and I point it to none for zone dropdown menu option but still couldn't able to geocode addresses. Please let me know. Thanks,
