How can I geocode a single address in python using arcgis 9.3?

I found http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgiSDEsktop/9.3/index.cfm?TopicName=Geocode_Addresses_%28Geocoding%29 - but this does a whole table, and I was forced to use a MDB file as the feature class and then inport and export from it.

  • Or if someone has example with VB, I could handle that too!

The tool accepts a Table View parameter, which actually includes both true standalone tables as well as table views, which are like what layers are to feature classes. See Working with layers and table views in the help for more information.

You can create a table view that is a subset of the full table by using Make Table View and supplying a where clause, and then pass that table view into the Geocode Addresses tool.
