    FindPushpin problem

    Hi All

    I wrote a VB application with mappoint map object in it.

    I try to find a pushpin whos name is: B&B SYSTEMS|24022|3

    Mappoint cant find this name, but when I look the pushpin in the map
    I can find it.

    Does anybody knows this problem and how to solve it.

    I dont seem to have problem with any other name.

    All the names are built the same with the |'s

    I have had the same problem. I would avoid Special Char/Spaces/Long Names if possible. If you are not working with really large numbers of pushpins you could use the instr() function.

    What's a coincidence ! I've got today the same problem with the following name :

    I.F.S.I CENTRE HOSPITALIER : 00001141 (200409290050001)

    I've got many others pushpins and they all work well. Only this one isn't found with the FindPushpin method...

    I wrote those instructions :

        Set objMap = frmMAIN.ctrlMAPPOINT.ActiveMap
        Set objRoute = objMap.ActiveRoute
        objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindResults(Me.zlCUST).Item(1)
    instead of

        objRoute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindPushpin(Me.zlCUST)
    And now, it works !
