I have successfully used the autocomplete to get the alternative placeNames from zip codes in italy: give the country and zipcode and you get alternative placeNames.

However, admin2 codes and names (county, or in italian "provincia") are key to well-formed addresses-

I cannot figure out which other parameters to pass to the function to also get the admin2 Code and Name. Is this something I can manage by passing extra parameters to the JSON query or is there some return variable which holds admin2 info which I am overlooking?

If the objective is to have a form that can narrow down country/county/city from a zip code, is there some other way to do this via JSON or XML?

Thanks
D.

The adm2 info was missing from the json response. It is now available, together with adm3.

Hi Mark,

Great!

I can access the adminCode2 directly as a varible returned by JSON after the postalcode value is sent. Thanks a lot
