Recommendations for a lookup type app?


Recommended Posts

Website for Automotive enthusiasts. Site includes a phpBB forum but integration not required. Based on a reference table created by site, user enters a series of 3-4 character (would like to have this customizable by admins) alpha numeric codes and gets a response back as to the corresponding definition of the code. Several possible uses of this one. Think in terms of part number lookup, zip codes to locale type thing. Only output needed is a screen listing.

There may be an exisitng code/program out there that does this but I haven't found it.

First time poster. If someone knows of an exisiting way to do all of this, recommendations appreciated. If unsuccessful, after a reasonable period of time, wil post in the freelance section but want to see if options currently exist. Thanks!

Maybe this is just too trivial for you, but how about a database with fields

id (autoincrmenet)
code (varchar, 32)
meaning (text)

MySQL search of database for %LIKE% to find records that match with string in code field, then display the full code and meaning for each match.

Search for 902

90210 - Beverley Hills zip code
902 - Area code for (somewhere)
1902 - Model 'A' built
