GoldMine: Finding Zip Code

A client asked: We often get addresses without zip codes. Is there a GM+View for this

Yes, to lookup a zip by address, enter the following into a GM+View:

Select Web > Setup GM+View
Click New > Enter a Template Name
Click in the large text box > click <H>
Copy and paste in the following:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
<HTML>

<HEAD>
<meta http-equiv=REFRESH
content="0;url=http://www.usps.com/zip4/welcome.htm?address1=<<contact1->;address1>;>;&address2=<<contact1->;address2>;>;&zip_city=<<contact1->;city>;>;&state=<<contact1->;state>;>;&zip=<<contact1->;zip>;>;">
</HEAD>

<BODY>
</body>

</HTML>
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Click Save > Click OK

Select the GM+View and you will get a form to enter an address and get the zip code
