Elwoos,
We can't use Web Services because we need high performance and availability.
We use the Post Office's postcode database and the grid reference positions that come with it.

Thanks Coolerbob I can do the same now. If I recall, when I originally posted, the grid reference wasn't included in the data.

Having said that I can't remember what I was doing this morning never mind a few years ago so I could be completely wrong

"We can't use Web Services because we need high performance and availability."

FWIW we do approx. 3,000 postcode lookups a day through the Postcode Anywhere web service and their uptime is very good.
