ZIP Code Lookup Template

Templates > Access

In this template tutorial, I'm going to show you how to perform a ZIP code lookup. You will be able to enter a ZIP code and have the system return the city and state for that ZIP code (yes, works with most foreign countries too). If it doesn't exist in the database, you will be prompted to add it.

Extended Version

In the Extended Version of this tutorial, if the ZIP code exists but there is only ONE city in the database for that ZIP code, it will return it and populate your customer form. If the ZIP code exists but there are multiple cities, a form will appear allowing the user to select which city to use.

Hi Richard
Question:
On the ZIPLookupF you have the code
    Forms!CustomerF!City = City
    Forms!CustomerF!State = State
    Forms!CustomerF!Country = Country Read More...

Yeah, that's a limitation of how I built it. A trick I've used to make a form flexible so it can be called from any number of different forms is to store the name of the CALLING form (the form that opened it) in a hidden field on ZipLookupF. So you might have:

Docmd.OpenForm "ZipLookupF"
Forms!ZipLookupF!HiddenCallingFormName = "ClientF"

Now in the ZipLookupF instead of "hard coding" CustomerF, you could say:

Forms(HiddenCallingFormName)!City = City
Forms(HiddenCallingFormName)!State = State

I use this trick in my Calendar Seminar and Templates so that ANY form can call the Calendar popup.

Good question!

Or to make THAT code even MORE flexible, you could say:

Docmd.OpenForm "ZipLookupF"
Forms!ZipLookupF!HiddenCallingFormName = Me.Name

And now you can just drop that code into ANY form without having to edit the form name.
