    Postcode data updates

    Hi,

    I really think there is a need for regular postcode updates for the UK, and probably other countries also.

    We use MapPoint 2006 to find addresses by postcode heavily and find as time goes on the number of postcodes which cannot be found creeps up. This means journeys have to be dealt with manually and causes a lot of overhead.

    This is the only major issue we have with MapPoint and it may force us to look elsewhere for a more frequently updated product.

    GPS mapping software has the facility for map updates, so surely MapPoint should include this.

    Thanks

    Jonathan Shields

    Re: Postcode data updates

    I use Mappoint 2006. I generate territories by grouping zip codes. It would be incredibly useful if zip codes could be updated. I would gladly pay extra for that feature as I'm very pleased with most features. It would also be most useful if addresses could be updated.

    Unhappy Re: Postcode data updates

    In addition to postal code updates--MapPoint needs a new choice in the Data Mapping Wizard for when the program doesn't find a valid matching zip. Currently, there is only OK, Skip Record, Skip All Records. We need the choice of "pick closest matching 5-digit zip code" or just "closest match". I use MapPoint to import donor addresses via territory onto maps and every month I have to go through the same addresses, find the same zips, and click OK. This is like 500 zips per month! It takes a lot of time!
