Ordnance Survey Grid Convertor Database

| Comments

I had some interest in the Access module for converting Ordnance Survey NGRs to Eastings and Northings (and vice versa) so I thought I’d risk putting the database on the site for download. It’s in Access 97 but should translate up to newer versions without much trouble.

I should also add that several people commented last week about an online NGR converter that looks really handy, and this excel spreadsheet full of handy vba functions for conversion offline.

Obviously this database is offered with no warranty: it has been scanned for viruses but I won’t be responsible for any damage done to you, your computer, pets, family, work colleagues, friends etc whilst using it. Other than that, you can share it, alter it or otherwise hack it to pieces. A little linkage back to here would be appreciated if it’s useful though!
