    Hi, this is straightforward to do manually using the package. Just find the location of the postdode on the map, select the radius tool in the drawing menu, left click on the postcode location and extend the circle to 25km. Then right click on the circle and press export to excel.

    Re: Mappoint Circumference and Post Code

    Oops sorry - just re-read your message. You want to list out postcodes. If you want to list out all the full postcodes eg KT17 4BT that's problematic. If you want to list out postcode sectors (eg KT17 4) that's straightforward. Which??

    You should be able to use the Data Mapping Wizard:
    - Shaded Area
    - Add (Great Britain) demographic data
    - Area Square KM & By PostCode/District/Sector

    Then select an area and export ...
