    Exporting pushpin data from MapPoint to Excel

    All the help I can find by searching the internet is for importing data to MapPoint. I want to export from MapPoint.

    I own MapPoint 2004 for use with APRSPoint add-on, so then thought I'd evaluate the 2011 version. This appears to have better handling of pushpin data, but still lacks the ability to edit and arrange pushpins. So exporting to Excel should allow me to edit the data and then import it back to MP.

    However MP's export ability is giving me problems.

    I've collected over the last few years from others about 70 .AXE files.

    The data exported to Excel is only part of the data visible in the pushpin's balloon in MP. I've tried this with a few .AXE files and get similar results - the data fields are again missing in Excel.

    So I tried to export from MP to .GPX files and experienced the typical problems of .GPX files being incompatible with other programs. They would not open in MapSopurce but would open in OziExplorer. (Export from OziEx to another .GPX file will load in MS.)

    But again much of the data is missing.

    The only way I can find to export data from MP is to copy and paste every field from the balloons. A very time consuming method.

    Any suggestions, please.

    Support PC's Pushpin Tool is worth a look - see support-pc.com . The free trial has a limit on the number of pins exported, but it should be able to tell you if it will work for your application. Full license is US$75.

    Our MPSuperShape product can export pushpins, but this is very much a second function - it is designed to manipulate, import, and export shapes (hence the name!).
