    Having trouble getting symbols to match MapPoint's symbols

    Hi,

    I'm using the MapPoint ActiveX, and am using the MapPoint symbols to create a breadcrumb report. The way I'd hoped to do that was to show a red dot with a white number inside, which represents the number of minutes since the driver left home base. According to the MapPoint program, there are 50 red dot symbols, with the numbers 1 through 50 appearing inside the red dot. But when I run the program and increment the symbol past 20, I get a square with letters inside, starting with "A". It's as though there are only 20 red dots with numbers inside.

    First of all, does anybody have any idea what I'm talking about? If so, can you suggest a way to access the 50 red dots which were "promised" in the Windows MapPoint? I say promised because I had assumed the symbols collections were the same between the ActiveX and the Windows program.

    Thanks for the help,
    Bob

    Hi,

    I assumed the same. Maybe display them in a loop incrementing with a small difference in lat or longitude. Then you know witch numers are witch symbol.
