Datarelation causing odd result

I am getting odd results which I suspect is related to a datarelation problem.
 I am trying to get the longitude and latitude for various postcodes which are supplied in customer addresses. The results i get are all rather odd with the location for the Birmingham postcode being in Scotland!
I think this is related to the constraints in the datarelationship I set up particularly as when i set enableFocre Constraints to true it generates a fault (and not if set to false)- "This constraint cannot be enabled as not all values have corresponding parent values."
Any ideas

Ive sorted this- it was related to the for each statement and the fact the dtrChild was being used before it was defined. Can I get the points refunded?
