I found this http://www.stdwizard.co.uk/index.html yesterday which looks as though its worth downloading. Just a lot of screen capture and then parsing the pages.

Sorry the mobiles.txt file contains it all from that site
but its not standard STD it has the
0151 portions for Liverpool exchange ok but then
0151922 for Bootle it needs work such as move
the substring 1,4 to a new field i'am going to work
on it later this weekend.

I had a look at it today and the phone code one isn't much use "each outcode has multiple towns associated with it". I think you either need to extend the code to where it reflects ONE location (eg 01933 = Wellingborough 01933 62 = Raunds) or stick with just the area designation (eg 01933 = Wellingborough). Having several locations all referred to by the same code is a disaster.

I have parsed a lot of it out and added prefix for example
STD     AREA   TOWN          EXCHANGE
0151    922         BOOTLE      LIVERPOOL

There is a program out there that hooks up to caller i.d.
Written in Delphi with updates for under 100 , I cant
find it now grrrrrrrrrrr I could do with it but I will wait
and see how my phonebook works out.
I f u look in the front pages of your phonebook the
exchanges are listed there.
That got me thinking with the code from the stdwizard
site. What I did I created a field for 3 and 4 and 5 and 6
STD prefixes looking down the list the 6 character STD
was the smallest so I grabbed that 1st the 3 character
was next smallest then 4 easy peasy

update myphone
set std4 = '0151'
where code like '0151%'

All that took less than an hour.
Then to sort the STD5 field
extract from the code the
substring 1 5
where std3 and std4 and st6 = null

again easy peasey now the final job
using substring and length take the
std3 to std6 prefix away from the
code that left 922 as above.

All done needs tarting up.

Yonks ago, when I added STD codes into my app I bought a little book from BT, scanned it OCR'd it and used that. It went right down into detail but back then I stripped it back to exchange area. I've been trying to find out if they have something similar now but the "new improved" BT website and phone systems seem designed to confuse rather than help.
