    Can multiple users view and edit one map at the same time?

    I use mappoint to track all of my exisitng cutomers. I now have an employee at another location and I would like for him to view the map at the same time and be able to add or remove puchpins and/or information. We have MSExchange server, is their anyway to implement this request. I currently have Mappoint 2002 but will purchase 2004 if it gives me this capabilitiy. Please Help?

    Hi,

    Programaticly possible but tricky I think. Both of the applications have to have a communication layer to each other (eg middleware, or an ordinary TCP connection with your own protocol). If editing has to be troughput in both (or more) programs, then you intercept each mousclick etc do all programaticly and tell the other program exacly the changes to do.

    Looks several weeks work to me. Maybe other or more simple approach are possible too...

    If only one side has to edit, and the other side only has to view the changes, then it is maybee simple. Just copytoclipboard, send the new map to the other end which then can display it with the changes.
