    batch creation of jpg driving direction maps?

    Does MapPoint or any MapPoint add-ons have to ability to batch create driving direction maps based of a data list, in any image format?

    For Example: Say I have an Excel sheet of 500 customer addresses for a particular business. Also included in that data is the business address. Can I create a unique map for each customer showing driving directions from their address to the business?

    Please let me know if this is possible!

    Yes, this is easily done with an Excel VBA macro. Do you have an Excel macro coder you can give the job to? It's not hard to get started Working With Excel and MapPoint - MP2K Magazine

    Re: batch creation of jpg driving direction maps?

    Eric,

    So MapPoint can export separate jpg or gif files for each set of addresses?

    I can't seem to do this manually, all I can manage is to export as a web page and grab the included .gif file.

    I don't have any programmers here, I'm kinda stuck with this project. Could you recommend any existing script that does a similar function? Maybe anything where an image is created from an Excel address list? I'm fairly comfortable with messing around with scripting, but a head start would be a huge help.

    Any introductory books or websites on VBA you could recommend to me for brushing up on the basics?

    Appreciate your help!

    Just that link, Working with Excel and MapPoint above. There are some links to tutorials there.

    The MapForums Downloads section ($19.95) also has a lot of Excel and MapPoint automation examples.
