I'm starting on a project with ArcGIS 10 where I'll be doing quite a bit of geocoding addresses. I understand the basics of how to do that. But a frustration on an earlier similar project is that when the boss would come down the hall with just a few more addresses for me to add to the map (over and over). So I would have to repeatedly re-geocode the whole table each time I add a few.
Thinking "there must be a better way", I came across the option on the geocoding dialog to create a dynamic feature class related to a table. This promises to automatically update the feature class when the data in the table changes. So I have tried this. I built a file geodatabase for this project, and imported some test data into it, and then geocoded the addresses. In ArcCatalog, I see my data table, the feature class, and a relationship class that links them.
However, when I edit an address in the table, I don't see any auto-updating going on. And more importantly, when I append more rows (via the Append toolbox item), they don't get auto-geocoded, either. Am I missing a step?
