Thanks for the info, I will check it out.
As far as I can tell, UPS actually doesn't ship to APO addresses so I
think the problem would still exist. The problem I am trying to
trap/intercept is detecting when an APO address is entered so I can stop
the transaction. As it is now, UPS just returns a $0 shipping amount.
The problem is that on certain items a $0 amount is ok, so I can't just
do a simple check.
However, I think with the info that Greg provided earlier, I should be
able to do a regex on the zip code ranges and get the info I need.
I appreciate the feedback though.
