I am both new to MapPoint and VisualStudio .NET, which I only recently began working with.
I want to use MapPoint Web Service to verify that an address is valid.
The steps I am taking are as follows:
Query the database, which yields a result set containing multiple addresses.
Iterate through the result set, record by record, verifying each address.
If the address is valid, changed the value of the checked field for that record.
The records are in the following format:
Address, City 1, City 2, City 3, City 4
Four attempts would be made for each record, with the city being different for each one.
For example, the first attempt would be Address + City 1, the second attempt would be Address + City 2... and so on.
Once a valid address is found, a checked field is updated.
I am going to be writing this using Visual Studio .NET 2002 (Enterprise Architect) with C# as the language of choice. I am using Access as a database.
I would appreciate any guidance regarding the use of the MapPoint API to validate an address: code samples would be especially appreciated.
