    Zip Code Update

    New Zip Codes are constantly being added by the USPS and existing Zip Boundaries sometimes are redrawn. Is there a way to get Zip Codes updates for MapPoint?

    There's not.. the internal boundary tables such as zip codes (as well as points like restaurants and post offices) are only updated when a new version comes out..

    The best you could do it create a correspondence or lookup tables. i.e. if there is a new zip code 60536 that is next to (or carved from) an older existing zip code such as 60535, you lookup table would say that 60536 corresponds to 60535. Hope that makes sense.
