    Trican, thank you for your feedback.

    I am hoping to get a number of feedback comments from people with different IP addresses all over the world so I can verify that this routine works for everyone, no matter what their location.

    Thanks again.

    It got mine correct but I'll point out that it's pretty easy and free to get much better detailed geo location, even down to the city.

    Your input is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks also to pbreit. And, yes, I am aware that I can get a geo location at city level, however, I am only interested at this point in time of routing visitors to different pages based on country location for reasons of currency and marketing restrictions of my client.

    I am pleased to say that I have now implemented the routine for my client and everything is running smoothly, so again - a big THANK YOU to everyone who has assisted.
