After a table of addresses is split into components using the Split Address Into Components geoprocessing tool, you may find that not all of the addresses in your table or feature classes were split in the manner you expected; for example, a unit number without a unit indicator might have been parsed into the StName field or a token in your input that you want broken into two separate tokens. Inspecting your table may reveal the reason for an unexpected parse; for instance, your input may have a misspelling or a missing space. For cases such as these, you can review the results, make corrections in the pane and your table and generate or add to an existing Exceptions File for use when you use the Split Address Into Components geoprocessing tool in the future.
Complete the following steps to review addresses split into components by the Split Address Into Components geoprocessing tool using the Split Address Review pane:
- In the Contents pane, right-click a table or layer that was created as output from the
Split Address Into Components geoprocessing tool that you want to review, click Data, and click Split Address Review to open the Split Address Review pane. This allows you to view and examine that parsing of each address in your dataset.
The Select Exceptions File pop-up appears.
- You can select the Create New option if you do not have an Exceptions File that you use when running the Split Address Into Components geoprocessing tool, or you can select the Browse option to browse for an existing Exceptions File.
- Browse to the desired folder location and either click an Exceptions File or type an Exceptions File name, and click OK.
The Split Address Review pane appears.
- Use the Split Address Review pane to review the incorrectly parsed addresses individually. The tool allows you to review the addresses one by one to address only the current problematic address.
The attribute table for the table or feature class that you select opens automatically alongside the Split Address Review pane.
You can also make selections manually in the attribute table. The Split Address Review pane is contextually tied to the attribute table. Select rows or run queries directly on the table to update the records displayed in the Split Address Review pane.
- If any addresses are parsed incorrectly, you can do any of the following: drag tokens from one row into another, drag to reorder tokens on the same row, or split tokens into more than one token.
You can drag using a mouse, or you can use the Tab and arrow keys to move tokens.
You can make use of Predefined Queries to make selections on the table and zero in on potentially incorrectly parsed addresses.
- When you finish reviewing your split addresses and making changes, save your edits to ensure all of your changes are saved to your feature class or table. Updates to both the table or feature class and the Exceptions File will be saved. To save, click the Save Edits button in the upper right of the Rematch Addresses pane. You can then close the pane.
