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



Don't worry head. The computer will do all the thinking from now on.

"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.
