    Cannot get postal code lookup to work outside the US

    Kevin Pinto

      Hi all,

       

      I have started to work with postal codes in Qlik GeoAnalytics 5.8.1 using QlikView, but cannot get them to work outside the US.

       

      In the US, a lookup using a composite field of Postal Code, State Code, Country Code works, e.g.

      78749, TX, US

       

      I can use this in both Bubble and Area layers.

       

      Outside the US, I have tried several options and neither work in either Bubble or Area layers:

       

      Canada:

      H1B 5A1, QC, CA

      H1B 5A1, QC, CA:XPC

      H1B5A1, QC, CA

      H1B5A1, QC, CA:XPC

       

      The same results apply to any non-US country.

       

      What does work to some degree:

      Montreal, QC, CA (in the Bubble layer)

       

      But of course, the resolution of the postal codes is lost.

       

      Perhaps I am doing something wrong.  Any suggestions are appreciated.
