    MapPoint Incorrectly Mapping UK Postcodes

    Hi all,

    New member so be gentle!

    I'm trying to import a dataset with two columns, the first column has the postcode district and the second has the name of the branch of my company that the postcode district is asigned to. i.e.

    CH4___Manchester
    B1____Birmingham
    ME10__Maidstone

    The problem is most data is imported correctly but some postcode districts are missed out completely and others are included that aren't in the dataset at all.

    Does anyone know why this might be happening please?

    I'm using Windows XP and MapPoint 2006. The files are CSV.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Jamie

    Just a guess: I think the problem goes away if you use lower case letters?
