On OHMPI 3.0.1 version,

When a search is performed for Address Line different from the database value the extra space causes an Alpha search to fail completely. For example:

Address Line 1='BROAD WATER COTTAGE', but the database value is 'BROADWATER COTTAGE',

In case of Phoentic search, the extra space reduced the Address weighting from a possible 4 to only 1.26 out of 4.
As a result the customer fails to find the patient.
