    Convert PTM file from 2009 to 2010

    Hi,

    we have a PTM file that built and used with Mappoint 2009.
    Now we want to use it with Mappoint 2010.
    When we try to open it with Mappoint 2010, we receive a message that tells us that the file has to be converted.
    We then click OK and the file opens.
    But text associated with pushpins are not OK. How can we easily convert this file instead of redrawing everything in 2010 environment.

    Thanks

    What is "not okay"? How has it changed?

    I might expect the pushpin symbols to change slightly, but their info should be the same.

    Were the pushpins imported with the Data Import Wizard, or was a link created? (perhaps the link is no longer valid?)

    I am having a problem as well. When I try to open our 2009 map version in the new 2010 version it puts all these black lines through the map. How do I fix that?

    Can you post your 2009 file as an attachment? Or a sample that does the same?

    Can you post the ptm file? Probably have to zip it first.

    What geography are you mapping? Is it zip codes?

    Whatever it is, I think they moved going from the 09 version to 10.

    I don't think there will be an easy fix.
