Hi

I am trying to map validate street addresses in Dublin, Southern Ireland using the test file structure below,

Street Address City Country/Region
Wellington Road Dublin Ireland
Castle Street Dublin Ireland
Bridge Street Dublin Ireland
Dame Lane Dublin Ireland
Dame Street Dublin Ireland

When I map the street all I get is a single pushpin for Dame Lane.

Has anyone got data file structure samples for Southern Ireland or tell me where I am going wrong.


Thanks in advance

Hi,

I'm not sure I understeand what you try to do. Can you give me a brief code example (a few lines) to demonstrate the problem ?

Hi Wilfried

I am using a CSV data file with the headers

Street Address City Country/Region

and the open csv file looks like

Street ,City,Country/Region
1 Wellington Road,Dublin,Ireland
1 Castle Street,Dublin,Ireland
1 Bridge Street,Dublin,Ireland
,,
,,

I use this file to test how Ireland address are mapped before writing any code.

All I do is to run Mappoint 2004, Data, Import Data Wizard.

I should get 3 pushpins onto the Ireland map, but I only get one pushpin and that is mapped onto 'Baile Afha Cliath - College Strret' which is not in the data file.

I know the street exist because when Dublin area is zoomed from Mappoint 2004 , Bridge Street, Wellington Road, Castle Street are mapped.

I hope the above information is helpful.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I tryed the same, but I get 3 pushpins, however all 3 on the same place and not in one of the streets they should be. Maybe the address should be in a different format ?

Hi Wilfried

Thats the same result I get, I have tried other file structures for example

Address ,City,Country/Region
Wellington Road,Dublin,Ireland
Castle Street,Dublin,Ireland
Bridge Street,Dublin,Ireland
,,
,,

and

Address ,City,Country
Wellington Road,Dublin,Ireland
Castle Street,Dublin,Ireland
Bridge Street,Dublin,Ireland
,,
,,

etc
and I get 3 pushpins mapped at trhe same location.

How should the file structure be organised ? There is no information regarding this on net .

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I never have used mappoint.exe, only the OCX. I know that using this way record and field deliiters are important. I have application using tab charcacter as field delimiter and crlf for record delimiter.
