I am trying to use the MapPoint objects to pass in a Canadian street address (without a postal code), and to get back the FSA in which the street address lays. This is done automatically for addresses in the USA, where the postalcode property is populated, however in Canada, the FSA does not fill this field. Is it even possible to get a matching on this data in MapPoint 2004?

I've tried the same thing. It seems the PCodes are not in the database for Canadian addresses. You can buy this data from several sources - one is Tetrad Computer Applications (http://www.tetrad.com/)

The cost is C$1,750 for all of Canada. One province ranges from C$175 to C$350.

If you call them ask for Michael he knows their data.

good luck,
