Is there a way to find the driving distance between two street addresses?
I am not using google map api or bing map api as they cost a lot.

Google maps API keys are free, just FYI.

google maps api doesn't cost anything. Either way, you'll need to use some form of an api or webservice. There are articles out there about generating distance between two lat/long points, but you still need some way to convert from address to lat/long.
This tutorial discusses how to do that with google maps. This is probably your best route.

Unless I miss read the agreement:
The data will be used in an intranet environment which is not in this agreegment. Correct me if I am wrong.
This is what I intend to use if I could use google free.

I used this API for my requiremtn.
You can use the same or you can use SOAP web services.
Get Lat/Long for two address. Pass these two address to service API, it will give you the distance.

Thanks for the sugestions but I could not use them as there is still the licensing issue.
Any other suggestion......??????
