Why does the output shapefile have no data when I geocode?

Discussion created by stephen_peyton on Dec 26, 2013
I'm trying to geocode a list of addresses from an excel sheet but keep getting a weird error where the shapefile when generated has no points.  The geocoding process runs and does give me a shapefile without reading any errors but again this shapefile has no plotted points.  The original data is a list of vacant lots in Minneapolis, and I have made sure there are no spaces in the column headings.  My address locator was generated using TIGER line files and requires street name and zip code in order to plot points.  When I input an individual street name + zip code combination into the address finder bar using my address locator it works fine and flashes that point, but when I try to geocode the whole list I get a useless no-data shapefile.  I am using ArcGIS 10.2, please help, I've been struggling with this all day =(
