    Adding Excel Data as Pushpins

    Hi,

    I'd like to import a set of pushpin data from excel into mappoint. I'd like to use the code to plot pushpins according to the postcode in Column C whilst allocate the headings of 'Name 1' to column A and 'Name 2' to column B.

    Eventually I would like to change the pushpin colour and style depending on the name field but for now I would appreciate help on plotting pushpins from excel according to postcodes.

    Regards,

    Ron

    Hi Ron,

    Do you means with the standalone mappoint application ? I'm not sure if this is possible. However you can do this easy programatically in VBA or any other language.

    I'd like to do it in VBA. I have some knowledge of using VBA within excel to do simple things such as Case and IF statements but it is limited and I have tried with MapPoint but to no avail.

    regards and thanks for your quick reply!
