    Spain Postal codes not matching with official information

    Hello

    I downloaded the psotalcode list from the oficial provider (correos) in spain, and when I try to import the data on mappoint about 20% of the codes are not recognized. (there are about 54.000 postal codes, and mappoint does not recognize around 1000)

    how this can be possible? What data provider uses Microsoft for the postal codes?

    (by the way, is there anyway to export the non matching codes to a excel file?)

    A type? 1000 would be 2% - which is actually very good for any system like MapPoint.

    Unfortunately 20% (10,000) wouldn't be unheard of. I assume you are using MapPoint 2010? If not, then upgrade to this, the latest version.

    Remember that it takes 1-2 years for data to get into MapPoint - so there will be some differences.
