Data sort help

Is there an off-the-shelf MSExcel function or 2.0 tool that will allow me to "return" a US City/State based on 5-digit US postal codes. I have 160 postal code queries to perform. The postal code data is in MSExcel. Something like this. I do not have MSAccess and I am a Mac user.

Firefox/Gmail Not Filling in Email (aka The Lazy Function!)

At my gmail sign-on using Firefox, I could type the first initial in my email name and it would drop down where I could click on my email name and automatically insert it (then password). It stopped doing that and I have been messing with Firefox autofill and that seems mainly for filling out forms. Yes, I am sure this is an easy thing for someone (me) to fix but for some reason it is stumping me. My wife and I liked the utter simplicity on our home computer of this function. Can you help? Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all MeFi users

Function databases?

I listened in on an engineering design lecture a few days ago, and was fascinated to find out that there are apparently databases out there that contain all the different ways some common functions can be accomplished - for example, getting liquid out of a cup. What are these databases called and where can I find them?
