Convert Coordinates to an Address?

Is it possible to take latitude and Longitude coordinates and convert them into an address field?

  • Yes, you can put one in street 1, and the other in street 2. I do believe it has to be in the correct format, but I can't remember exactly what (meaning first coordinate N, second W, versus like South then East).

    There was some small trick to it, so if you have any issues try to figure out what system you have and try the reverse (ie - if the number is 270 degrees, and it is not working, try -90 degrees).

      I found my original posting on this. The trick was actually this:

      "Mark, you are right you need the decimal degrees (pure numeric) vs decimal minutes (has the N,W,S,E). I tested and thought I got it to work, but apparently I did not!"

      See the thread here.
