Automating postcodes to open in Google Maps

Recommended Posts

I'm some what of an newbie to the scripting side of FM.

I have a table "Contacts" which contains a field called "Postcode" which obviously is used to store the postcode (zip code) and I want to use a button that will open up postcode location for that particular record in Google Maps.

I have tried the following calculation:

"http://maps.google.co.uk/?q=" + Contacts::Postcode

I'm sure you're looking at this and thinking this is never going to work as is the case I might add!

Also the postcodes do have spaces in between eg: "BL1 2CD", does this make a difference?

Regards
