Hi

is it normal that German admin_code_1 from the postcode file are different from the admin_code_1 in allCountries?

Example, from the postcode file:
Code:
 DE      24816   Brinjahe        Schleswig-Holstein      SH              00      Rendsburg-Eckernförde   01058   54.1667 9.6333
 
 >> admin_code_1 == SH
 


From the allCountries file:
Code:
 2944071 Brinjahe        Brinjahe        Brinjahe        54.16667        9.63333 P       PPLA4   DE              10      00      01058   01058031        133             16      Europe/Berlin   2011-04-25
 
 >> admin_code_1 == 10
 


This make the lookup difficult/impossible.

Maybe I missed something?

Thanks for your help

Digging into this issue, it appears that this problem is affecting lots of countries as well (UK, ...).

How do you guys "join" the allCountries data with the postcodes one ?

Hi Raphael

The two datasets are not harmonized and they cannot be joined.
SH is the iso code and 10 is the fips code.

Best Regards

Marc
