This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Hi Bill, nice function. Just a couple of things:

1. When I tried to use it I would only see "A" pointer on the start location, and "1" pointer on the destination. There was no line drawn between them, nor any actual directions as text, should there have been?

2. Is it ok to omit certain parameters, ie just leaving them as double quotes? Some addresses in countries other than the US do not have a state or zip. It seems to work to the degree mentioned in (1) above, but that's about it.

Cheers
