OK, I'm stumped. There used to be a CD ROM out there called Pro Phone that had all Canadian (and US) phone numbers and addresses on it, along with business SIC codes. You could search by company, phone number, listing, whatever. I want one to do mailouts to places like churches, etc.

I googled them and came up with nothing, and can't find ANY company that offers this. Is it illegal now, or is there a service on the net that I can download. I know Superpages.com offers single phone number and address searches, but I need a Canadian (or BC at least) directory that I can crank out address labels from.

Thanks!

Years ago a lot of businesses use to use Frasers or Scotts directories to help them find contacts suppliers and/or new sales leads. I think some of them do offer this stuff on cd-rom.

The wife asked me what the next upgrade is. Hope she meant the projector.

Yep, I confirmed at BB today that Pro Phone went under about 2 years ago. You'd figure in this age of marketing that this kind of software would be more popular than ever. Thanks for the tips, I'll go check them out.
