    Default post codes

    Hello all

    Is anyone interested in post codes?

    I have been gathering post codes for my client area and can also produce other areas on request.

    Just let me know what area you require and I will retrieve them from my master data base.

    Hi John,

    I am interested in UK Post codes! Do you have access to the whole UK Post Code records?

    I am interested in adding a UK post code table to my own APR but do not know where to start.

    I am trying to to get my apr to a level where a user would just enter the PC and door number to complete an address section of their data imput.

    Comments/Suggetions appreciated.

    When you say you don't know where to start, what stage is your app at or is it you don't know where to start gathering the post codes.

    Hi John,

    I am from Cardiff, Wales working away overseas and I am developing a Alpha APR that has access to UK Post codes, as explained in previous message.

    My direct email is >

    I am interested in the 1.9 Post Codes's - shall we start up a line of direct communication through e-mail to discuss further?

    Regards
    Andy

    Hi john (Again),

    I was mean to say - don't know how to obtain a full copy of the UK post codes. I have an APR which is already in use but the UK addresses are completed manually. If I can reduce the input to a Post Code and a door number through a linked table that would be fantastic.

    Does your Post Code information include the complete address? How is your table compiled?

    Regards
    Andy

    Hello Pete

    It helps if you give me main towns to extract the data from e.g. Sheffield or the outgoing part of the post codes you are after e.g. S = Sheffield or NG = Nottinghamshire and so on

    Regards

    Hi John

    The main two are LE & CV (Leicester & Coventry).

    Also B, DE, NG & NN (Birmingham, Derby, Nottingham & Northampton) would be useful if its not to much trouble.

    Regards,

    Pete

    Andy,

    Take a look at AFD postcode.

    I use thier postcode software. Its 'robot' feature detects that you have typed a postcode, looks up the address, and places the data in the correct fields.

    Hello John,

    Are you still providing Post codes for Alpha 5, if so I would really appreciate having Post code for the East Anglia region so that I can add them to my invoice database.

    The codes I would like is for Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

    Best Regards

    Paul Kendall

    Did anyone actually get any post codes? As John hasn't posted to this forum since January 2003, it seems unlikely that he's still around.
