Import USA or CAN Postal Codes

3D permits the importation of postal or metro codes for specific states or provinces in North America. You can save time and effort by integrating zip codes when entering new job information or adding new contacts. This feature is only accessible to users in the United States and Canada. If you are located outside of the United States or Canada, you can manually populate or manage autofill items via Maintain > Postal Codes.

Once you leave the postal code field (by tabbing to the next field or touching another field) when adding a new job or contact address, the City, State, and County fields will be automatically populated.

To initially import postal codes for a specific US or Canadian state or province, select Maintain > Import zip codes for a state in Office Management.

What is a postcode for USA?

In the United States, a postcode is commonly referred to as a ZIP Code. ZIP stands for “Zone Improvement Plan,” and it is a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to efficiently deliver mail.

A ZIP Code in the United States typically consists of five digits, although an extended format called ZIP+4 can include an additional four digits that provide more specific location information.

For example, a typical ZIP Code might look like this: 90210 (which is famously associated with Beverly Hills, California). An extended ZIP+4 code might look like this: 10001-1234.

It’s important to note that ZIP Codes in the United States are specific to geographic regions and can cover areas as small as a single city block or as large as an entire state, depending on the population density and postal requirements of the area.

What is a 6 digit postal code?

A 6-digit postal code refers to a numerical code used in various countries to facilitate the sorting and delivery of mail. The format and specific usage of 6-digit postal codes can vary between countries.

For example, in the United States, the postal code system is called ZIP Code (Zone Improvement Plan). ZIP Codes consist of five digits, but there are also extended ZIP+4 codes that include an additional four digits for more precise location identification.

In countries like Canada, the postal codes are known as Postal Codes or Forward Sortation Areas (FSAs). Canadian postal codes consist of six characters in the format “A1A 1A1,” where the letters and numbers represent different regions and areas within the country.

Other countries, such as the United Kingdom, Australia, and Germany, also have their own variations of postal code systems, each with its own format and usage.
