    hi!

    Here is the code. And it works great for England.

    for example:
    100 Abbey road, london, england
    works fine. But I cant get it to parse most other EU addresses.

    Dim oMap As MapPoint.Map
    Dim MPLoc As MapPoint.Location
    Dim objSA As MapPoint.StreetAddress

    objSA = oMap.ParseStreetAddress(myAddString)
    MPLoc = oMap.FindAddressResults(objSA.Street, objSA.City, , , , objSA.Country)(1)


    Thanks in advance for any help.

    An update after some experimenting:

    In this app, I am asking the user to enter street,city,country.

    The parseStreetAddress does work...more or less. FOr example, in Holland:
    Sandinostraat 2013,amsterdam,holland wont work
    Sandinostraat,amsterdam,holland wont work either
    but 2013 Sandinostraat does work.


    I havent tried, but perhaps using one of the other streetAddress object properties, like postal code would work better....<shrug>.

    Hi,

    I think it is very normal that ParseStreetAddress only work "more or less" because in each country the way of writing an address is different and nobody knows how Microsoft parse it, it is not documented into the help.

    But I dont see any reason to use this method because there is the FindAddressResults method and this one works ok. If you wants the user to enter an address string in 1 field then you better parse it yourself but it is better you ask the user to enter street, city, country etc in separate fields.
