    Basic automation questions; database to pushpin map

    I'm trying to figure out where to start. I query a database to get a list of zip codes and a count of the number of members in each zip code. Right now, I do that, copy and paste into excel, save excel, import the data and map it in MapPoint. I want to write some kind of script to automate this. Ideally, it will be a web page where I select the criteria for the database call, then submit to generate the map.

    I am familiar with VBScript and ASP--but I'm more of a manager, not a real developer. Do I need to jump into Visual Studio.NET and learn C# or is there some way I can hack together a simple solution?

    Hi,

    If you are familiar with VBScript, then I _think_ you can jump into VB.NET very easy. If you have Visual Studio then VB.NET is in it. If you have to buy it just for this solution then some freeware things (for VB.NET and C#) are available too. eg: http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/Default.aspx
