Supply Format

The list is supplied as a Comma Separated Variable (CSV) delimited text file using double quotes by default. This field format will open very easily using almost any software application including but not limited to Excel, Word, Notepad, Access, SQL etc.  Due to the size of the file, older versions of Excel may not be an option as Excel limits any file size to around 65,000 rows / records.


The Postcode Post Town list is by default emailed at the time of order using a secure download link delivery method.  If you require the data supplied in another format then we will be more than happy to accommodate you where reasonable to do so at no extra cost.


The file is licensed annually for each user that has access to it according to Royal Mail Terms and Conditions.


The file is updated every three months and free updates will be made available to you so long as your licence remains current.
