Bing API and Excel - Inconsistent Distance Tracking/unable to find some postcodes. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning,

    I'm using Bing Maps to help determine the nearest location to a postcode search using Excel to store a list of location postcodes.

    While this works most of the time I'm seeing some strange issues with the following:

    • Partial Postcodes - Inputting some partial codes, BH12 for example defaults that the nearest location is Leeds at 10 miles...Not exactly true.
    • Some Postcodes result in a Value error - SK1 4AW for example brings up a value error while SK1 3AW works just fine.

    Any advise on what could be the possible problem? I admit to being new to using the API so if you need any further information I will try my best to provide it.
