000010: Geocode addresses failed.


The process of geocoding the table of addresses failed possibly due to one of the following:

  • The address locator is invalid.
  • The geocoded output is a shapefile and reached the 2 GB file size limit before geocoding all of the records in the table.
  • The input table contains a GUID or GlobalID field and the geocoded output is a shapefile.
  • Editor tracking is enabled for the geodatabase table.
  • A composite locator with missing input fields from the participating locators was used to geocode a table using multiple fields. The composite locator needs all of the input fields from the participating locators if geocoding a table using multiple input fields.


Ensure the following:

  • The address locator, database, or network connection is valid.
  • The geocoded output is saved to a geodatabase.
  • Editor tracking is disabled for the geodatabase table.
  • Geocode the table with the composite locator with the missing participating locator fields by doing either of the following:
    • Specify the Geocode Addresses tool's Input Address Fields parameter value as Single Field.
    • Use either the Geocode File or Geocode Locations From Table tool's Address Field Mapping parameter, and provide the full address in a single field instead of multiple fields.
  • Every participating locator input field is mapped to a composite locator input field in the Input Fields section of the Field Map parameter in the Create Composite Address Locator tool.
