Zip Code Look-up or Finder


P

PhotoMan

A few years ago I had a desktop utility that allowed me to enter a city and
state, and it then showed the Zip Code (and Area Code) for that location. I
prefer not to use an online provider, as I need to run it on a non-connected
system. I'm running Win ZP Home.
TIA,
Joe Arnold

Win ZP -- the last of the P series. Then they move on to Win AR. :)

On that note, here's a demo of Windows RG. The download takes a couple
minutes (on dialup), but it's worth it. It's *highly* interactive --
make sure you explore all of the icons, selections, etc. Fascinating!

Regarding your quest: many cities (even small ones) have multiple ZIP
codes, so you might want something that allows you to enter a real
*address*, or it's not going to have much practical value.

There maybe something here.. if you check around I'm sure you
can find the one that can be listed as a screensaver that
allows you to just enter City and state. I've had it on my
computer at work for years..I don't have the exact url, but it
was from here. HTH

Thanks Blinky - I *did* find a website that showed all of the area Zip Codes
when simply typing the city name, and even showed latitude and longitude,
but alas; it's web-based. Otherwise it's just what I'm looking for. Here's
the link:
http://www.zipinfo.com/search/zipcode.htm

Type in "Flagstaff, AZ and see what it does.

Not surprisingly, it gives 10 ZIP codes -- that's what I'm talking
about. What use is that? It's like telling you my phone number is
212-632-something.

I agree, but the one I used to have didn't do that unless that parameter was
invoked. The helluvit is that I saved the executable, and can't find the CD.

Didn't do what? What parameter? You've lost me. The only parameter I
see in our example is "flagstaff az". And the only "do" I see being
done <g>, is returning a set of ZIP codes.

Hello Joe,

I found a 2 possibilities (SpeedKeys and Rapid*Address!) and one to take
note of in order to avoid it (Zip Express). They were discontinued and
are not being updated. (The USPS site notes that they update the
databases they offer every month or so.)

Susan

http://www.speedkeys.com/download.htm

SpeedKeys is now Freeware!

Speedkeys features:

* Look-up Zip Codes
* Cities
* State Abbreviations
* Area Codes
* Internet Country Codes
* Generate PostNET bar codes
* Talking Keys feature to prevent you from making typing errors.
* Keyboard Enhancer feature that lets you type repetitive sentences and
phrases at the press of a single Hot Key.

* Windows 95/98 Note: Speedkeys will run under Windows NT, 2000 and XP,
but it does not shut down correctly. Users must "End Task" when
finished. We are researching this problem and when we have a solution a
new version of the software will be posted on this website.

Download SpeedKeys:

Speedkeys.exe ~ 3681 KB
http://www.speedkeys.com/speedkey.exe

Download the latest ZipCode/Area Code database. ~ 300 KB
http://www.speedkeys.com/zipcode.zip

(To Install the update simply extract the zipcodes.txt file into the
same folder as SpeedKeys and restart the program.)

# Rapid*Address! for Windows 95 or better ® v1.0 (free but not being
updated.

http://www.pine-grove.com/rapid.htm

Rapid*Address! not only provides city, state, ZIP Code or area code look
up for over 42,000 ZIP Code locations, it allows you to insert into any
application -- be it word processor, database, spreadsheet, appointment
book or what have you -- address information formatted the way that you
need. You simply enter the ZIP Code in a pop-up window and
Rapid*Address! will find the location and copy whatever address and/or
area code information you want to your current application.
Rapid*Address! can save you potentially thousands of key strokes as
well as increase your accuracy.

Don't know the ZIP Code? That's okay. You can also enter the first few
characters of the city or do a state->city look up and Rapid*Address!
will find the location.

The application, Rapid*Address! is FREE for NONCOMMERCIAL USE.

MS Windows 95/98 or Windows NT 4.00 or higher

We will not sell or give away your e-mail address to anyone.

==> Took awhile to find it but it's worth it, it's called Quick Info.
Besides being free it does everything you're looking for and then
some; To wit: it will give,Area Codes, International Time Zones and
International Area Codes
plus WWW suffixes for the world.

A visit to their web page will also show a bunch of other goodies as
well.

Dear Joe,

Dont know of any free solutions to your problem. Least expensive
solution I know of is a flatfile database from KJL Software
(www.kjlsoftware.com). You could use this to populate any database
contained in your OS (if M$ provides anything like that).

A standard application as you described is available from Jay Computer
Systems. I believe that it costs $250.

Burgs have one zip code. Cities have several. It would take quite a
database to store zip codes for intersections, let alone individual
homes/businesses.

All that is wonderfully obviouis. And like the other non-answers, it
doesn't address the *question*. Using *his own* example, *what good
does a list of the 10 ZIP codes in Flagstaff* do anybody? Gonna put 'em
all on that evnvelope? Gonna send ten duplicate letters, each to a
different ZIP code?

All large cities in the USA have several zipcodes and post
offices.
The zipcodes correspond to streets. To get the correct
zipcode for a large city you need to know the street. Small
towns usually have one zipcode.

poster wanted a non-internet zipcode list! Whee! But if you
know
someone's name, type it in Google and see what you get. Lot
of
information like address and phone number (some type the phone
books into
Google).

I have a zip code database that provices city, state, zip, and
latitude/longitude info. I use it with my GPS unit. It came from the
internet (somewhere). If this would help, and you can't find it, contact me
at the above email and I'll put it on a server where you can download it.
