    Default Using Canadian FSA postal code with US Dual Ranges in 10.0 sp4

    I get good hits with Zips like 12345 but not with H3X.

    Why?

    9x locators worked with these postal codes.

    I added a line to the ZIP5 part of the LOT file to accept [A-Z][0-9][A-Z] as a format for ZIP. That did the trick, though it was clearly a hack.

    Why is this not more clearly documented? I looked at ESRI Canada's web site and did not find a LOT file for download that would work with FSAs. Why?

    What style locator rules are used in the 10.0 Street data that shipped with ArcGIS? I could see the reference data from the locator properties but could not identify the rules files. Was it a 10x locator?

    We don't ship any styles other than US styles. You would need to contact ESRI Canada about getting either the Canada locator style or a Canada locator.

    You could also create a custom style just the way you did. There are no longer "Rules" for the locators, you create the "Rules" by defining them in the grammar of the locator style XML.
