Summary: How to use the MDB file (link below) as a locator to reverse geocode (point->address) with ArcMap?
The sample works with a file ESRI provided, Atlanta.mdb, and with DataMaps10 US Streets locator.
I am trying to get my own MDB files to work. I can do the following with them:
//Address -> Point //Address -> Closest Address Match //Point -> Nearest intersection //Intersection -> Point
I can't get Point -> Address to work.
I don't know how to identify the problem. I project my IPoint coordinates to the projection of the MDB, but that doesn't work. I've tried everything I can think of. Can you give me some ideas of things to try to isolate the problem? I have a temporary license for ArcMap for another week, so I can use that to help. I'm using ArcEngine 10, C#, & VS 2010.
I've uploaded a zip file here: http://www.filedropper.com/roads
It has an MDB, a shapefile and a projection. I used the shapefile to create the MDB file.
I need to know how to reverse geocode this MDB file. I need to just one more operation:
//Point -> Nearest Address
I would like to do it programmatically, but if you tell me the steps to do it in ArcMap, then I will have a decent idea how to implement it programatically, and that will be good enough.

Edit #2: When I implement the sample here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/index.html#/d/0001000001n9000000.htm
There is this line of code:
IPropertySet addressProperties = reverseGeocoding.ReverseGeocode(point, false /*return intersection */);
If the second parameter, return intersection == true, then it works. But if the second parameter is equal to false, it throws a COM error, 0x80040217, which corresponds to GEOCODING_E_REVERSE_GEOCODE_NO_ADDRESS_FOUND . I've tried a lot of different coordinates and I have my search radius equal to 1 km, so something should be found.
Which points to this: 9.3.1 Locator Styles http://resources.arcgis.com/gallery/file/geocoding/details?entryID=12D8D400-1422-2418-34B0-4FE1CC06C0ED
I am hoping that I can get these 9.3.1 styles in the same way that the empirical programmer got it to work, and that might be a solution. If I can I'll post it, and give you the points empirical.
