  2. Copy the geocoding service and associated reference data to the location where other users will be able to access it.
  3. Right-click the geocoding service in ArcCatalog and click Properties.
  4. Click the Browse button and navigate to the new location of the reference data.
  5. Check the 'Use relative path names' option.
  6. Click OK to save the geocoding service.
