I dont know how to actually PROGRAM it...but I do know how you can do it. Have the Enter form _javascript take the ZipCode given and enter it into a url like "http://www.websitename.com/ZIPCODE/location.html" and itll enter the Zip Code into that space and redirect to the page for that Zip Code. I dunno if that helps at all. You could canabalize the Nextel page and get the needed Javascripts and just enter them into your site.

That's a good idea also... You can take the code you need on another website and just turn from the source code all lines looking like (c)The locator-Coporation to (c)My (stolen) locator...



I'm kiddin'

Notice that this soopafast "programming" technic will work only if the webmaster of the source locator site is a moron and let his ressources opened to everybody on the web. If not, you will get an "ERROR 403, forbidden ressources", when you will search for the ZIPCODE sources.

I would know how to program it... But it's a little complex to explain over here.

The above comment on adding the ZipCode input, to the URL - is a bit troublesom.
It means having to make a page by hand for every ZipCode, there wouldn't be much error checking - so, what if a user inputs an invalid ZipCode?

Also, it would be a security risk (if no error checking was in place).

A better solution would be to create a database (can even be 'flat file' database), and then match up the users input with the database entries - and display it respectly. This way you only need to create one 'location results page' - as the database queries will dynamically create the output.

Feel free to U2U me if you need any help during your project. And good luck
