    How to associated dates with waypoints in MapPoint.

    Does anyone know how to associate dates, as a pose to just time, with waypoints using MapPoint?
    My users create routes which span multiple days I then pass that information to MS Outlook and create a schedule based on arrival times, thus the need exist for the users to set dates for each waypoint and for me to retrieve them when I loop through the waypoints collection gathering location information.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Ghandi,

    MapPoint won't store dates for you.. this would have to be part of your application to associate them or you would need to write an add-in. MapPoint will only keep track of the days since you started the route. It does not have a calendar built in.

    Thanks Eric.
    Has anyone out there dealt with this issue before, if so, what did you do?
    I hate to recreate the wheel if I don't have to.
    Thanks in advance.
