    Default Zip code proximity search

    I am looking to put a zip code proximty search on a site and I am not sure how to approach it. My client has vendors whose zip codes would be known, and he wants visitors to enter in their zip code and have asp spit out the closest vendor.<BR><BR>Preferrably, I am looking for something pre-coded (must be ASP), but am open to other options.<BR><BR>Any nudge in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Default That is incredibly crappy code!

    It pulls *ALL* the records from the DB and then uses VBS coding to find the closest.<BR><BR>BLECH.<BR><BR>Do NOT go that route.<BR><BR>See this thread from yesterday:<BR><BR><BR>Be sure to read the thread in the Advanced forum that it references.<BR><BR>
