This Geocode File includes a list of data records for US ZIP Codes designated as PO Box ZIP Codes that are included in the PC*MILER database. It is comma-delimited and sorted in ascending order based on the state/province, county name then ZIP Code.
NOTE: PC*MILER’s US ZIP Code database includes PO Box ZIP Codes according to the following rules:
- if USPS had designated the only ZIP Code assigned to a location as a PO Box ZIP, then it was added to the database as a routable location;
- if the USPS has designated a street address for a PO Box ZIP Code, then it was added to the database as a routable location;
- and if neither, and you enter a PO Box ZIP, you’ll receive a message: “This is a non-routable PO Box”. This file only includes ZIP Codes that, if entered, return the message: “This is a non-routable PO Box”.
