I'm using an address locator service based off an address point feature class in ArcGIS 10.3. My ultimate goal is to write an app which will parse a list of addresses in a database and determine the X/Y coordinates for them.

So far the service is working correctly, however it is not returning results when search terms are only partially entered.

For example:

  1. "2150 Main St" returns data
  2. "2150 Main" returns data
  3. "2150 Ma" does not return data

I have tried searching using wildcards, but that has not made a difference. I know that ArcGIS 10.3 has the option of doing a Suggest operation, but that will not work since all of these searches will be happening behind the scenes.

Does anyone know how I can enable the locator to work with partial search terms?

  • Did you find the solution to that? I am facing the exact same problem! – Stratos Tso Sep 13 '17 at 8:39
