How do I parse Address into Street Number, Name, Type, Unit Number? Is there a function which will conduct this?

2280 MEYERS AVE                                            
ALDERGROVE AVE & S VINEWOOD ST                             
SIMPSON WAY & N HALE AVE        
412 E WASHINGTON AVE #3                                                               
AVOCADO AVE & LEMON ST                                     
572 N TULIP ST

  • would adding a select + work for your process? – Ali Razeghi Mar 18 at 18:33

  • Parsing an address is even more cumbersome than parsing a name. You need a list of unit designations, directional abbreviations, logic for order, etc. Is "10B Smith Street" the same as "10 Smith Street Apt B"? (normally, yes) See stackoverflow.com/questions/11160192/… for a very lengthy breakdown. – BlueGI Mar 18 at 18:55
  • And hope that your only dealing with one set of legal bodies. Because if your dealing with international or unique standards it can be very lengthy. Hint: it’s partly why many online forms require the Country first before the other details are entered. – clifton_h Mar 19 at 0:56
