eg assume postcode is in a variable called txtPostCode
using the url below, does it work?

WebBrowser1.Navigate = "http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&time=&date=&ttype=&q=" & txtPostCode & "&ie=UTF8&t=m"

did it work?

and silly me, I was thinking of Lyme, not Tyne. Stafford is like a million miles away from toonside, lol.

Need to make a slight adjustment to the string. Its to do with the space in between the postcode. Can either add %20 or remove it altogether, google maps should still accept that

eg

WebBrowser1.Navigate = "http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&time=&date=&ttype=&q=" & replace(txtPostCode," ","") & "&ie=UTF8&t=m"
