    I would think the information would be available from the Postal Service?
    Or the yellow pages/phone directory, possibly?

    You can get it out of MapPoint but it takes a bit of leg work.
    First, plot some of the demographic data as pushpins by zipcode.
    This will insert a pushpin for every zipcode.

    Then draw a shape polygon around the city. Select the shape, and select "Export to Excel". This will export the pushpins contained in the shape, to Excel.

    I had a big problem at work today trying to hunt down zip codes for 600 addresses in Canada, this proved most useful --

    Yes,If we implement this function in mappoint,I think it will be hard.then,I found a websitehttp://www.infospace.com/home.toolba...es/reverse-zip,which is very good.and I can seach my most cities.
    Then I program it to implement using VB.In my database,there are about 13,000 records ,and it takes about 8 hours to handle ,Oh ,No,It is too long!

    Hi,Eric,
    the website you mentioned is a good site,and so useful.However,After I try to it,I found it needed to be provided street name,street no,if it is like this,I think it is better to use mappoint to get the zip code directly!

    Re: How to get alll zip code of one city

    I realize this was posted a few years ago ao i hope you found the solution to your problem. However, Have you ever searched for a free zip code data base? I purchased a PDF of new york zip codes from New York Zip Code Map. If you are interested in the free zip code database it can be found here Zip Code Guys's Map Blog. Let me know if this works for you.



    Cheers!
