Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Does this software work on Mac, or just PC?

    While the Excel Distance Calculator works on some versions of Mac computers, I currently do not offer support for MACs. As Macs use different VBA libraries, that can cause some conflicts with some of the functions in this tool.
  • Is this a one time fee, or ongoing?

    You will only pay once for this software. This will provide upgrades and live support via zoom if needed for one year. However the software should serve your needs for years to come.
  • Do I need a Google Maps API Key? What is a Google Maps API key?

    The Excel Distance Calculator uses the Google Maps Platform to give you extremely accurate (to the 1/100th of a mile). As such you will need to setup a google maps account. It takes 5 minutes to setup and it is free of charge. You can view the instructions on how to setup the google maps api key in this page. I have also created a video where it shows step by step how to setup the api key by clicking in this youtube video.

  • Is the Google Maps API key free? Do I have to pay for my calculations?

    The Google Maps API key is free to get. However, keep in mind Google does require you to setup an account. You can run up to 40,000 calculations every calendar month free of charge. If you go over the 40,000 calculations Google charges an a-la-carte fee of 5 USD/1000 queries/calculations. More information on Google Maps API Pricing can be fond in this link.

  • Can I use Addresses or Zip codes? What format should my input data be?

    The Excel Distance Calculator is extremely forgiving when it comes to what data you can use/enter. You may enter a combination of full addresses, zip codes, City/State or even Geocodes (Long/latitude).

    So “84122”, “ 123 Main, Park City, UT, 84101” or “Park City, UT” are all acceptable addresses. You can also mix and match your different address types. Obviously the more complete the address, the better ( more accurate) results you will receive.

  • Can the Excel Distance Calculator be used for non-US addresses? Can I enter, say Canadian or British Zip Codes?

    Absolutely. The Excel Distance Calculator works with addresses from all over the world. As it calculates driving distances please note that there needs to be a driving path between the two addresses. So a calculation between “New York City, NY” and “Paris, France” will not return a value as there is no driving path between those two cities as they are separated by ocean.

  • What is the maximum number of calculations I can perform at any one single run?

    The Excel Distance Calculator is meant to help you calculate driving distances and driving times between large sets of addresses. However keep in mind that the calculation is at the rate of about 3-5 calculations per second. So a 200,000 calculations data set would not be practical as it would take quite a long time. In addition, be aware of the costs associated with running such a large number of address sets. Refer to the API Setup Page for more information, but as to current time google allows for 40,000 calculations monthly free of charge. (via a 200 USD recurring monthly credit)

You will need a Google Maps API to use this tool!

All of our tools use the Google Maps API to generate results. This allows for accurate driving distance and time results and fast data. I have included some instructions on how to get a google maps API and what services to enable. Click here for more information on how to setup the Google Maps API Key.

A few more things regarding the Google Maps API Key.

You don't need to be a developer to setup a google maps api key. It takes about 5 minutes, and it is a simple as setting up an account with Google

  • The Google Maps API Key is free to setup. It doesn't cost anything.
  • You will get up to 40,000 calculations free of charge. (Google allows for a 200 dollar credit for every calendar month).
  • If you need more than 40,000 calculations in a calendar month, google charges an a-la-carte fee of 5 USD/1000 calculations.
  • For most of my clients that use this tool, 40,000 calculations are more than enough.
  • You will need to setup a billing account with Google, although you will not be charged unless you go over the 40,000 calculations per month.
  • If you have a large number of calculations, (more than 40,000) contact me. I might be able to help.
