    Zip Codes not recognized?

    Hello,

    I've been wondering why MapPoint 2006 doesn't recognize some zip codes that exist... For instance, 80923 (colorado springs, co) which exists on map quest but not in MapPoint. Furthermore, does anyone know how i can have my visual basic program look for City and State or Zip so that if the zipcode doesnt exist like above, I can still find the location using the city and state without making the program fail... Right now i am using the code:

    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults(DlrZip).Item(1)
    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults(CustZip).Item(1)
    objRoute.Calculate

    To find the distance from the dlr to the cust. I was wondering if I could do something similar to this:
    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults(DlrZip).Item(1)
    objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults("City, State" or CustZip).Item(1)
    objRoute.Calculate

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can use FindAddressResults(Street, City, OtherCity, Region, PostalCode, Country) where all arguments are optional.

    Is 80293 too new for the MapPoint database?

    Re: Zip Codes not recognized?

    Hello
    I have similar problem i.e. I often build maps using a customer database & always come to the same unrecognized zip codes
    Each time I have to select another zip code manually (hoping it is not too far from the good one!)

    Is there a mean to avoid this?

    Is this possible to have mappoint recognize my own zip/city?
