hello!

I need to create a search faciltity that will display all postcode records within either 10, 15, 20, 30, 50+ miles from an entered postcode ny the user.

similar to the search in www.autotrader.co.uk.

Im using ASP with an access database.

How can this be done?

Vito,
I have not done this, but I can give you the general idea how this is done. You need a file or database with each postcode and the respective latitude/longitude and use this data to pull queries.

Underzen describes the PHP version (not ASP, sorry) to this in another post http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22 ('http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22')
