Get Google directions via Address Book
Authored by: peeejay on Apr 03, '05 05:12:46PM
I had the same problem, and, based on the original "Google Map Of" script, I modified it thus: Replace the line

if street of v is not missing value then set params to params & street of v & " "

with

if street of v is not missing value then
set shortstreet to street of v
if shortstreet contains "#" then
set poundcut to offset of "#" in shortstreet
set shortstreet to get text 1 thru (poundcut - 1) in shortstreet
end if
set params to params & shortstreet & " "
end if

This truncates the street at the # symbol. There may be a better syntax, but Applscript is quite picky about the offset function. Obviously google ignores the unit number, but it does get you to the front door of the building!
