Bug BUG-000096168


When using a forward slash (/) as an intersection connector in a Dual Range address locator, it is unable to locate the intersection when street suffixes are not included.

Additional Information

This issue will not be addressed. Please use a different intersection separator instead.

Alternate Solution

A workaround to be able to use the forward slash as an intersection connector is to comment it out in the “Number separator” section of the locator style. This change is not made with the out of the box style so the user has to make this change for each release.

1. Open the existing locator (right-click *.loc.xml and edit with Notepad or Notepad++) and search for “NumSeparator”.

2. Comment out the line that includes the forward slash like below:

<!--Separators for numeric house numbers and unit numbers-->

<def name="NumSeparator">



<!-- <alt>/</alt> -->


This fix is for this locator only. If users would like to fix it for all locators going forward, users need to make the same modification to the “USAddress.lot.xml” file located in your %ARCGIS_INSTALL%\Locators folder (typically <a href="file:C:/Program" target="_blank">C:\Program</a> Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.x\Locators).
