Hi @Scout50 D,


After troubleshooting your source code, I also found that the values for administrativeArea and locality fields of the Address object in your request are incorrect. I suggest you use “MI” instead of “ME” for the administrativeArea field and “Detroit” instead of “Michigan” for the locality field in your source code.


In addition, since the C# client library doesn’t currently support the display of detailed error messages, we suggest you follow the Make a simple HTTP request step-by-step guide on the Google Developers site to learn how to use the OAuth 2.0 Playground for troubleshooting errors with detailed error messages when sending requests with data via the Google My Business API.
