Edit: To be clearer this uses the local search in google search api, not the google maps api to do the geocoding which is much more accurate. The best way is to use Google Search Api.
This chunk of code above is what utilises the google maps keys, to pass the data to google, geocode it and return the record and I've written this inside of a function that gets called on the form
I've no idea how the licensing of this works, but calls to GDirections do correctly geocode full UK postcodes. The locations are slightly different from the maps.google.com locations, since they will have been snapped to the nearest street.
Something we wondered if we would ever see, but it seems the Google Maps API geocoder will now Geocode UK Addresses and Postcodes (see update below). This is quite big news on many fronts, as traditionally UK geocoding is expensive...
Google Maps has a well know API that can be used for great things. The most common one of course – putting a map on your website and placing markers to show where things are.
Google Maps Geocoding API обеспечивает непосредственный доступ к этим службам через запрос HTTP.
Batch geocoding. Use this page to geocode a large number of addresses, postcodes or ZIP codes.

Re: Geocode a UK postcode. I think you are maybe going about this the wrong way. The google maps API, which is used to produce the map on that automateexcel website will take a UK postcode if you set it up right, its just that hes got it working on lat and lon.
