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.
Want to learn more about this template and how it's built? The first video above is the FREE TechHelp version of the template and shows how to work with a single city/state for a ZIP code. Click on the download link to get a copy of the FREE template created in the video.
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.
