Issues Addressed with this Patch


  • NIM048951 - Default output locator workspace in the Create Address Locator GP tool should be set in the workspace where users click New > Address Locator.

  • Description: When creating a locator, the default output location of the locator should use the location that was clicked to start the create address locator process.

  • NIM070139- Geocoding a table with blank values in the address field generates the error message "The index passed was not within the valid range” or “There was an error trying to process this table.”

  • Description: To clarify, this issue occurs when an address table contains a “null” (not blank) value in one of the required fields. The batch geocoding process fails with the error message “The index passed was not within the valid range” or “There was an error trying to process this table.”
