Hello,
I downloaded the fedex shipping free addon and I found that I will have to update the database to reflect the shipping origin zip code.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to go about doing this? I was able to obtain a pdf of the shipping table from fedex.com, but they don't offer a csv file or anything that could easily be imported into the fedex.mdb file that comes w/ the addon.

Thanks in advance for any help.

steve

Thanks for the tip. I was able to update the .mdb tables but in doing so I found that there is no zone correlation for the international zones and their correspoding postal codes.

Has anyone updated the 'zones' table in the fedex.mdb file so that it includes the international zones?

It is my understanding that FedEx will do a custom DB for you if you are their customer. Takes about 5 days.

You can also get a zone chart for your zip code on the FedEx website, but it comes as a PDF. I hand entered the info into the fedexzones table. Took me about 5 - 10 mins to do it.
