Hi Darren,

please make sure that the addresses in address(varname) do not contain
any blanks or special characters.
Blanks should be replaced with "+", special characters with something
useful (like "ss" for "ß"), as documented in -help geocode3-.

I added a line that asserts that and replaces blanks if needed (not
special signs because there are just too many to control for and I
don't even know which ones are rejected by Stata in other languages
than German). However, until that is online replace your blanks with

replace varname= subinstr(varname, " ", "+",.)

Another thing i found out is that my standard formatting of %12.9f of
the output g_lat and g_lon variables is messy for some values e.g. the
Australien coordinates, change it to something better like %12.9g and
it displays correctly (the values are right anyway, just the display
is off).

regards
Stefan
