    Calculating travel time between two locations

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to build an application using VB or VC++ which calculates the travel times between any two locations?
    This would be a requirement which should be fulfilled in order for me to use MapPoint.
    If MapPoint might not be able to do this, which affordable routeplanner might be an alternative?

    Kind regards,
    kwijnen

    Calculating travel time between two locations

    I use a VB app with the MP2002 ActiveX control to do this. It is very doable. Of couse you mean estimated travel times!

    Re: Calculating travel time between two locations

    I'm a newbie .. sorry if this seems a stupid question.

    I also want to calculate estimated travel times, from a home base to a list of addresses in a spreadsheet (or I could use Access).

    I've found snippets of code in Help. I've programmed Access before as an enthusiastic amateur.

    My problem is knowing where to start - ie creating the base code within Excel or Access that establishes the link to Mappoint.

    Does anyone have some sample code they've used for Excel or Access ?

    Much appreciated.

    I had the same question as you. I've just found this from MSDN, which may get you started with accessing Mappoint from VB or other applications:
