    How do i label my pin points?

    I am a novice map point user who has a problem. I would like to produce maps for our key acount managers with their customers on. So far it is no problem, but when I have a map of Sweden with about 200 needles, how do I get a label next to each label showing the name (and only the name) of the customer? I.e. "Coca Cola", "IBM" and further on. Each needle will have a unique label. I know how to do this manually for each point, but this will take to much time when I have about 20 sales reps with 200 customers each.

    Thx in advance.

    I'd recommend you try out the excellent Pushpin Tool at this link

    Pushpin Tool: Manage your Microsoft MapPoint Pushpins

    Alternatively you'll need to write some code to automate this eg when I did it for myself i used excel vba. One of the pushpin balloon states you can specify is just to show the name. It's also possible to use the Text Box as opposed to balloons which would give you potentially more control over positioning as overlap will be a big issue with lots of pushpins.
