Hi - I was wondering if anyone could tell me if MapPoint will map postal codes of European countries. I just downloaded the 60-day trial version of MP and tired to do it, but "postal code" (or similar) is not one of the fields the program seems to recognize. But I have a feeling there is a way to do it.

I have postal code info (all numeric) for France, Spain, Poland, and Russia. Can someone please tell me how I can use this data to create maps in each of these countries?

Thanks.

France should be possible but I haven't tried it. Same for Spain.
Both also have their own language editions of MapPoint Europe.

Russia won't be possible - it isn't covered by MapPoint Europe.

Many countries (especially those in Eastern and Central Europe) have partial map coverage - Poland comes into this category. Ie. it might work or it might not.


Just to be clear, MapPoint North America will not be able to map any European post codes - the above is for the European Edition.
