I thought I might add ZIP code DB + Region DB + Country DB to the things
I want to provide on the support site, under some rubrique like
If some people here can provide their country's zip-codes, I'll add it
to the db.
Naturally, I would provide ALL of Switzerland's ZIP codes.
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[T_ZIP_YourCountry](
[ZIP_UID] [uniqueidentifier] NOT NULL,
[ZIP_ID] [int] NOT NULL,
[ZIP_Number] [int] NULL,
[ZIP_String] [nvarchar](4000) NULL,
[ZIP_Name_Short] [nvarchar](4000) NULL,
[ZIP_Name_Long] [nvarchar](4000) NULL,
[ZIP_State_Abbv] [nvarchar](20) NULL
[ZIP_Country_ISO] [nvarchar](2) NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
Make sure ZIP_Name_ short+long is in the native language, not English.
If it's only provided in English (and English is not the native
language, add an additional nvarchar column, like name_en)).
Else it's going to be a mess.
e.g. (Swiss ZIPs)
ID, ZIP_Nr, Zip_Str, Name_Sort, Name_Long,
56E65A31-15AB-4352-9335-2FCB8931BDBF, 0, 1201, '1201',
Genève, Genève, GE, CH
23899739-3D30-4C79-ABCA-375EEDCE3A02, 1, 1200, '1200',
Genève, Genève, GE, CH
5A56CD0A-848E-4B43-8B30-F3C15F049AE5, 2, 1200, '1200', Genève
1, Genève 1, GE, CH
A804CE5E-A4AC-410E-8564-DF76EC74BE1E, 3, 1200, '1200', Genève
2, Genève 2 Cornavin Dépôt, GE, CH
I think the drupal project would be a nice source for such partial lists.
So if someone has 'too much' time...
Equal things for a list of States/"Administrative Units"/Regions of
Timezone and monthname/weekname might also be useful, but that can be
read out from .NET on Windows automatically.
