    UK data fro Microsoft Map for Excel (2K/SR1)

    Hi - newbie to the lounge and sad to see search function is out at the moment as my query may have already been addressed. Looking for a source for UK map data to use with MS Map in Excel. Got a job where I'd like to illustrate research findings from a project covering Greater London using this app. Any leads? (looked at mapinfo but not sure what I want was to be found at a price I can afford...)

    Cheers

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    I am hoping that this is relevant information for you, and I am afraid I have some bad news from MS. Check the following MSKB article 235306 . Reading it may indicate that you may find a Europe but not simply a UK data set. But it talks about what files you need.

    Best of luck, and also try and post your message in the Software Finds and Wants section.

    Enjoy your stay here nevertheless.

    XL97 has a UK map, though I am not sure of "legality" of attaching the files so I won't, maybe you can do a google search for them online:

    Re: UK data fro Microsoft Map for Excel (2K/SR1)

    On a possibly related subject... Anything out there that can help manipulate UK postcode data. Sort of thing I have in mind is entering a valid postcode (Validated from a known database) and then finding the nearest postcode to it from another list and also calculating the distance between both points. Kinda like a store locater I guess.

    Regards
    Peter
