Hello Experts Exchange
Does anyone know where I can get a UK map with all the postcodes in it so I can use in a SQL Server Reporting Services report.

If you could provide where I can download it that would be great, if I need to purchase please provide URL.

Regards

Does this article solve your problem?

This article also has a link to a UK shapefile:

(Step 4 of Prerequisites)

Or maybe you can find the solution here:

I haven't tested any of these techniques myself. But if you can't solve your problem with this information please let me know what your data looks like and what the report you want to create should look like. Then I'll try to help you with that.
