    Add PushPin by longitude/latidude

    Is it possible to add PushPins not via FindResults method but by the longitude/latitude information?

    Because I have about 300 locations it takes a lot of time. So i once use MapPoint 2004 to get the lat/long-information of all of my locations and store them together with the other data in SQLServer.

    If the productive map is opened then i fill a DataSet (including the stored lat/long infos from the db) with the ImportData method and use the DisplayDataMap method for displaying some pies according to that lat/long infos.

    Inside that DataSet are also the lat/long infos so it would be nice if i could use this information for adding some PushPins with Balloons.
    Is this possible? How?

    Or is there any other way to show some infos, e.g. the name of a location, together with the pie?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've coded something very similar to what you're trying to do, but with Access and addresses in Scotland. We had a lot more addresses, and an abysmal hit-rate - partly due to nonstandard address formatting.

    This article here, tells you how to determine the longitude and latitude of a Location object:

    You then create your pushpin from the Location object created by using a Map object's GetLocation() method.
