    Reverse look up

    I know that I can enter a postal code (like v6v1w2) in the search function and it will show me where this postal code is. What I want to do is draw in a boundary and have mappoint show me what postal codes are inside this boundary. Is this even possible??

    Yes, it should be possible.

    First do a Shaded map using the postcode. The Shaded map could be of anything such as population or area.

    Now draw your polygon, right click on it and select "Export to Excel".

    Let us know if it works for you and also what country you are using.

    Re: Reverse look up

    I cant seem to create a shaded map using Canadian postal codes. I can for the USA using zip codes. I will keep playing with it.

    I know I can create territories but only in the first 3 digits of the Canadian postal code. But I cant do it when making the shaded map.

    Thanks for your help

    I did figure it out, at least one way of doing it. I import a list of the Canadian postal codes for the city I need and then it plots them. I used a very tiny symbol that I imported so that I really cant see it on the map. Now when I cirlce a part of the map I can export it to excel and get a list of any of the postal codes in that circle.
