    Hello,

    1. You can find detailed information about creating data files in the SDK if you search for 'Formatting MapPoint Web Service Data Source Files'

    2. There is a hiearchy in an address from most accurate (Address) to least accurate (CountryRegion). This setting allows you to specify how high up this hierarchy the geocoder will go to get a geocode. So, if it can't find the street address do you want it to try to geocode the postal code?

    just a question from a rookie, what is an "SDK?" I performed the search for 'Formatting MapPoint Web Service Data Source Files' on the mappoint discussion board in the msdn.microsoft.com site and did not find anything relevant. please clarify. thank you
