Geocode DLL .03

Minor fix for ZIP codes with leading zeroes. Issue was causing mistranslation of some northeastern states.

Hey John,
The application is workign great.
I do have one suggestion.

Can you expose the COMMAND TIMEOUT on the calls to the database.

When Reverse Geocoding, in rural areas, I have experienced a sql timeout. I would like to increase the timeout, so that I can get a result, as I increase the bounds.

I installed on SQL server 2000 and am using your dll version 03 and when I geocode an address I get slightly different locations from what I get using Shouldn't I expect to get the same since they are based on the same data? Or are they?

also an example;
I am trying to geocode an address "2221 N. Gracie Way Post Falls, ID 83854" My Geocoder can't find that but it can find "2221 Gracie way Post Falls, ID 83854". can find either. The real address is with the N.

I have noticed one other thing. When it is trying to parse the address for example of 123 Glenwood Dr, Mytown, LA 70706 works but 123 Glenwood, Mytown, LA 70706 does not. It works on as wells as google and the others.

Thanks for a great app to read the data in and make it usable.

You must include the street type, so leaving out the "dr" will make the parsing fail.

Apologies for the negativity, its just average folk like me simply don't see the point.

They should move to Mogadishu which is where they are desperately needed.
