    Is this complex calculator possible?

    Hi when it comes to code I am a novice. I am building myself a website in wysiwyg web builder and have been informed that what I want to do can be done however I need to code and a database. I thought of a cool idea to implement on my current website build. I was thinking about a calculator of some sort whereby people can input/select a postcode which will then work out the distance from my office and from that display a call out charge which is preset by myself.

    How I think this can be done

    I want to have a set postcode for my office hidden within the code, then if possible which is the complex bit have a database of postcodes in the uk or can a list be downloaded from google maps or royal mail? then what i imagine will happen is the calculator will then work out distance in miles between the two postcodes and from this display how much I charge for a call out to that postcode. the prices will also be set in the code by myself for example any postcode distance up to 5 miles will be free then say for example postcodes between 5-10 miles 10 and 10+ ring to discuss?

    This is what I have been told

    The initial layout can be made with the program ie say a form to allow the user to input information required but the logic behind it would require programming such as a PHP to pull the data from the database and then javscript to do the rest.

    Any help or ideas where to start will be great thankyou
