Error codes in DOTS Address Geocode – US are the same for all operations. They are as follows:

Error Code 1 – "Input cannot be less than zero length"


This error means the web service did not get any input. The connection to the service was made, and data was transferred, but no parameters were passed that the service could understand. This error often happens when input is passed to the service with namespaces that the service does not understand. Applying a namespace to any of the parameters (Email or LicenseKey, in this service) will cause this error. Additionally, requests made in the "rpc/encoded" format will cause this error. 


Important Note!
The namespace is not applied to the GetGeoLocation element, it is only present.

Error Code 2 – "Various Descriptions"


This error code appears when various errors occur, but are of the expected nature. Oftentimes, maligned or incomplete input will cause an error 2.
