    address postcode merge assistance please

    Hi All

    Just been recommended this forum so very nice to be here.

    Can i please ask for some help on a GB address database, i have met with a brickwall.

    Basically, i am looking to merge post code data with latitude & longitude, i have googled and found the following instructions as shown in the link below. Now having completed this process, i find some of the merged results in the wrong area, for example: results are turning up in the North sea rather than Kent.

    Convert between Latitude/Longitude & OS National Grid Reference points

    Now what i am hoping for is either an application preferable free-share (but also willing to pay for an app) that i can use or a detailed list of instructions on how to complete.

    I obviously understand you guys are busy bees and i am very new to these forums but would really appreciate some assistance.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you Kindly

    Adam

    that page allows you to convert a postion (latitude and longitude) to an OS Map reference
    the sticking point is translating a position to a postcode or vice versa.

    for that you need somehtign like Nearby.org.uk Geocoder - UK Postcodes - GB Grid References - Lat/Long
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
