    US Streets with Zone Locator Style in ArcGIS v10

    mvolz47
      To All ArcGIS Users:

      In ArcGIS v10 I created an address locator using the US Streets with Zone locator style.  With this style, the address locator asked the user for an address plus a zone to input.  In ArcGIS v10 I tried using the US Address - Dual Ranges to duplicate this style.  The problem is that there is no input box for the user to enter the zone to limit the returned results.

      Does anyone know of another address locator that would provide this default functionality?  If not, how would one add this functionality to a locator style file?

      Any help or hints are greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

          The Dual Ranges locator style is the one you want if you have Left from - to and Right from - to address ranges.  You would just map the Zone that is appropriate to your reference data (City, State or Zip) and leave the other fields mapped to <None>.

            Thanks for the feedback Brad, but I found a better solution where I was able to use my customized locator style from v9.3.1 in v10.0.

            I made the mistake of copying the .loc, .loc.xml, and .lox files from a v9.3.1 box thinking that I would recreate the address locator in v10.0 from these files.  I thought I would see the style I was looking for in the Address Locator Style dropdown box, but it was never available.  I then copied the .lot style file from v9.3.1 and I was then able to get an address locator where it asked the user for an address in 1 input box and a zone in a second input box.

              THIS IS TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!  I have multiple cities around me and we keep a one mile buffer around our city of streets for our CAD and RMS system, and we use the address geocoding to find what "ZONE" the danged points are supposed to be in.  We have addresses in our data for persons, places and events that span all of Arizona at times (like recovered stolens) and this former locater style is what made my bread and butter here.  Reverting back to a 9.3 LOT file sounds like I'll have to find it and make that work as I cannot even use CrimeView's import wizard to do what I've been doing for over 15 years, and that is geocode all of our crime data and related information easily. I cannot find the *.lot files on the install disk mform 9.3 so that is not an option for me apparently.

              Hopefully fewer changes to reliable products from ESRI would be a better business plan than making everything more complicated.

                I apologize but found that the US Address- Dual Ranges actually mimics the old address locator style quite well for the most part.  The issue was that the Omega Group's Crime View Import Wizard is not recognizing the zone fields that you setup within the locator and was not apparently the ESRI issue (although they are potentially related to some degree).  I am tired and have been messign with trying to get this PC up and running again after an update to Win 7 and it has proven to be a challenge. My Frustration came out in the previous posting and I apologize.  I should always wait 4 days before posting stuff, but Brad's response did not seem very helpful and I still don't know what he meant by mapping my zones first, but it was not the locator style problem at least on face value.
