Hi, if i understand correctly, an invalid postcode in a batch will appear as [Not Found] in the same order, so you can trace back to find which one was invalid.

If it can\'t do a post code it skips in batch, but doesn\'t tell you what it skipped. Otherwise works great!

You are a saviour! Italian cars don\'t do postcodes - street names or long/lat mama mia!

It was working fine, now (5 mins later) it only does the first line of a batch... no white space issues. occasionally clicking 'convert' it does 2-3 lines, then back to one again.. weird.
Otherwise its great :)

Postcodes in the Isle of Man, e.g IM1 3DE, appear to give 100.00000,0.00000 incorrectly

When you say it doesn't work, what have you input (which postcode?) and what happens when you clicked to convert?

What rubbish. It doesn't work!! Why not!!

Thanks for the feedback Rachel, we will add in a trim (top and tail) to remove any whitespace before processing.

Thanks for this very useful tool. I found that leading and trailing blanks caused most of my problems (remaining errors resulted from a couple of Republic of Ireland postcodes which I do not expect to be able to convert!) and was able to convert 55 postcodes straightforwardly.
