FAQ: Does Address Finder Web Service support partial addresses?

Question

Does Address Finder Web Service support partial addresses?

Answer

Yes, Address Finder Web Service supports partial addresses. If you do not provide the complete address, you can still get a list of candidates based on the information you have entered. For example, if you only enter a city name, the result list contains cities whose name matches the name you entered.

v2006 and v2006.1 - Request that Address Finder returns partial addresses; by default, this functionality is turned off. To turn on partial address support, first use the method getInfo to see which data sources support partial addresses, then set the object parameter AddressFinderOptions.partialAddress="true".

v2.0 - All data sources with the word 'Address' in the middle of the data source name, such as TA.Address.US, return candidates with partial address information.

Note:
Using a) the name of a street, b) the state or c) the street with the state returns Error 6001: Not enough address information.
