    Re: Doesn't import all data

    Ok, thanks! How do I get it to show a primary key for instance. In the spreadsheet I have numbers listed in the DB column. I would like these numbers to be shown on the pushpins to indicate where they are in comparison to the paper list we have of addresses. Hope this makes sense.


    Thanks!!

    Re: Doesn't import all data

    When you import, specify the DB column as the "Name". Then you can open up the balloon and show Name Only to have the pushpins labeled.

    The Pushpin Tool ($75) lets you pop up the Name Only balloon for all the pushpins on the map, otherwise you'd have to do each one individually or write your own macro.

    Pushpin Tool Add-in - MP2K Magazine

    Note that you could create custom pushpin symbols such as the ones at Welcome to Pushpin City! — Provider of MapPoint Pushpin Symbol Sets and Tools for Creating and Managing Custom Pushpin Symbols, but I think that would also be rather involved, also maybe requiring a custom macro.
