    Access Datatable

    Hi. I've been combing through this forum for a few hours and have found a lot of info. However, I need some assistance on a certain task I'm trying to perform.

    I have a Access 2000 database with a table containing address information. I'm trying to take this address information and put pushpins for all of them on the map that I have on one of my forms. The hard part I think is that some of the address information is incomplete/wrong so if Mappoint cant find the exact address, I need it to put a pushpin in the general area (city/state).

    Can someone publish examples of some of the code they have for similar situations?

    If the address is wrong or incomplete then mappoint cannot find the exact location. A possible approach is that in that case find the address based on the zip code and city or both. Then the pushpin will be placed in the center of the area.

    You could for example warn the user that it is an incomplete address by putting a reconizable pushpin for that situation.

    better than nothing I suppose ?
