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?

Pretty simple code ...

select a.zipcode FromZip, b.zipcode ToZip from zip a, zip b where a.zipcode!=b.zipcode;

Open in new window


Drop the "where" if you also want same zipcodes listed as from and to ...

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