When you make edits to your geocoding reference data, either by adding or deleting features or rows or by editing the address attributes they contain, you must rebuild your address locator if you want to geocode addresses against the current version of the reference data. The Rebuild Address Locator geoprocessing tool allows you to select a locator and rebuild it.
- Browse to the Geocoding Tools toolbox in ArcCatalog or the Catalog window in ArcMap and double-click the Rebuild Address Locator tool.
The Rebuild Address Locator dialog box appears.
- Click the Browse button that is next to the Input Address Locator text box.
The Input Address Locator dialog box opens.
- Navigate to the locator you want to rebuild and click Add.
- Click OK.
This initiates the rebuilding process.
