Configuring field aliases for the Find Address task

The number of text boxes and the text you see on the user interface for the Find Address task come from the locator itself. You can change the text by editing the locator (.loc) in a text file before publishing it to the server. Changing the locator, however, will also change how the text appears in ArcGIS Desktop.

  1. Navigate to the location of the locator.
  2. Open it in a plain text editor such as Notepad.
  3. Search for the text FieldAliases. For instance:

    FieldAliases = Zone

  4. Edit the field alias. For example, you might change Zone to ZIP Code:

    FieldAliases = ZIP Code
