    Retrieve postcodes list

    Does anyone know if it is possible to retrieve a list of all UK Postcodes from Mappoint 2002 (European Edition), possible in a text file or csv file or maybe into excel.

    You dont seem to be able to use a wildcard in the FindAddressResults method so I guess the easy answer is 'no'.
    However with a bit of iterative coding you could get a list out by trying all the possible combinations. Or give 150 to Royal Mail (or whatever they are called this week) and get a PAF or similar.

    Had a bit of a play. Iterative approach is painfully slow.
    Found this link which may help for partial postcodes and/or validation:

    There is an easy solution to this.

    Use the territory manager in postcode area, district or sector level mode, then select the whole country using Add To Territory to make the whole country one territory, then select normal legend tool and right click it then export to Excel.

    Voila - A list of Postcode area, sector or district postcodes.

    If you want full postoces for the 27 million Uk addresses you will need the PAF file from Roayal Mail or third party vendor.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks that last one worked well, all I needed was postcode sector not the full list so this worked brilliantly
