    Re: Distance between 2 points along charted route

    If you already have the MapPoint (ptm) files with the routes defined, then pen & paper might be the quickest solution.

    For larger numbers, custom programming could be used. The program would have to select all ptm files in a directory (say), load each one, find the length of the route, close the file. File names and corresponding route distances/times could then be written to a text file or Excel.
