Bug: .MAT geocoding rule file must be copied to the $SDEHOME/geocode folder

Description

When using the sdegcdrules command to load custom geocoding rules into an ArcSDE database, the .MAT geocoding rule file must also be copied into the $SDEHOME/geocode folder.

Cause

Geocoding rules are read from the GCDRULES ArcSDE system table. However, there is a bug that causes the .MAT file to be read from the $SDEHOME/geocode folder, rather than from the GCDRULES table.

Workaround

Follow the steps below.

  1. Use the sdegcdrules command to load a set of geocoding rules into an ArcSDE geodatabase.
  2. Copy the .MAT file into the $SDEHOME/geocode folder.
