in reply to Re: International Addresses
in thread International Addresses

The only problem with the canadian postal codes and using the first byter to determine the province is that both the Northwest Territories and Nunavut both use X as their identifier. I will have to do this on a country by country basis that way I can introduce custom code per country. I have a book that contains the address formats of 193 countries, and I am using that as a starting place... I know this is massive, but there is nothing out there that does anything like this, and anyone who does any type of database work with international data will have a need for this.

    I have had a need for something like what you are doing. I gave up and just used 4 lines of free format text, except in the case of US addresses, for which I had formatting rules. What book has the address formats of 193 countries? I might buy that one.

    The more I learn, the less I think I know.

      The book is called Global Address Management, and the author is Graham Rhind. (It is like 350 bucks though)
