    Changing the Legend

    I am using MapPoint2002. Upon default the Map has a Legend that shows Populated Places, Boundaries, Transportation and Miscellaneous.
    As soon as I add a push pin to the map it creates a new catagory Pushpins.

    I am trying to Rename the Pushpin to a new name like "Plotted Points" and delete the other 4 items.

    When I look at the example for renaming a Legend Title I can't seem to get it to work.

    This is what I have been trying to use:

    Public oApp As New Mappoint.Application
    Public oDM As Mappoint.DataMap

    ' I believe this should set the DataMap object to the current legend title.
    Set oDM = oApp.ActiveMap.DataSets("Pushpins")' Here I believe I am setting the new title I want
    oDM.LegendTitle = "Plotted Positions"


    So far no variations of what I am trying to use seem to work. Any ideas?

    I also have not been able to find any information to delete the existing other Legend Categories Populated Places, Boundaries, Transportation and Miscellaneous.

    Would anyone have any ideas for that?

    Thanks

    I don't have any solutions; this is just an affirmation that it would be quite useful to be able to customize which of the default Legend Categories actually display. It would also be useful to be able to select from assorted Boundaries classes. These capabilities would give the user more control over how "cluttered" the map display becomes.
