Zip Codes By Radius

Gustav Hobel, Purple Phaze Productions

Basis for a list of ZIP codes within a specified radius

Then copy & paste into the "Edit Web Address" field of FileMaker Pro 8.5's "Web Viewer Setup" window while defining a Web Viewer object in Layout Mode. Use FileMaker's calculation functions to replace sample data in this example with references to the fields in your database. See FileMaker's documentation for more information about Web Viewers.



Final result is a list of ZIP codes within the specified radius of the ZIP code entered.
The free webservice at returns the ZIP codes in the specified radius (miles) and includes the distance for each found code. The calculation GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( <object name of web portal> ; "content" ) returns the result in XML. The custom function ExtractData ( XML; Attribute; Instance ), submitted by Andy Knasinski, NRG Software to this forum, helped to extract the ZIP codes from the XML code. This solution requires a script to build the list. The result can act as a primary key to find address records with matching ZIP codes over a relationship.
