New here and like the program,

I cannot get results for Canadian postal code results.
Like N3H-4R6, tried dashes spaces + no space...
any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Bruce

I am afraid, we only have the FSA (first three letters) for Canada in our database :

That works fine as the complete pc does exact location by residence, not always needed.

Close is good.

Thank you, great program!

We'd been using the postal code webservice for Canada and UK, and a few days ago our queries stopped working. We had been using the first three letters in the postal code to do queries like this:

http://ws.geonames.org/postalCodeSearch?postalcode=V4L&country=CA&maxRows=1

It worked great and now returns zero results. Do you have any idea what happened, whether this service will be restored, and if so when ?

Thanks for reporting this bug. It was a problem with lowercase/uppercase in the search index for postal codes and has been fixed now.
I am very sorry about this bug.

The regression test suite has been improved and these test cases are now part of it. I am confident that it will be impossible for a bug like this one to be introduced again in the postal code search.

Regards,

Marc
