I'm working on a trial version at the moment (been several years since I've worked in ArcGIS and I'm working on some small things to demonstrate need at my new gig for adding the software). 

Anyway, trying to geocode some addresses, data sets range from 5,000 to 150,000 entries.  Running into all kinds of problems.  The process seems to just randomly stop with a nondescript window popping up saying "There was an error processing the data" That's it.  I'm using the locator "10.0 North American (ESRI Online)".   with cleaned up Address, City, State, Zip fields. 

Am I doing something wrong?  Any ideas why this is happening and how I can get it to work?
