I have a zip code listing and need to create a zip to zip listing. The order of the zips do matter so if I have 01001 to 17325, i still would need the reverse too, 17325 to 01001. I don't think I can do this in excel because of the 1 million row limit but can I do this in sql?

And that is going to be a big table, with somewhere around 2.5 billion rows.
