    Yes is the answer. Straight out of the help file...

    Find a place using latitude and longitude coordinates (through the MapPoint GUI):

    On the Edit menu, click Find, and then click the Lat/Long tab.
    In the Latitude box, type the latitude of the place you want to find.
    In the Longitude box, type the longitude of the place you want to find.
    Click Find.
    Note For each latitude and longitude coordinate you find, MapPoint creates a Pushpin on your map. You can add text to the Pushpin balloon and rename it. These Pushpins are automatically stored in a Pushpin set called My Pushpins and saved with your map.

    Click OK.

    Notes
    You can express latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal or DMS (degrees, minutes, and seconds) format.

    DMS coordinates can be entered in any of the following ways, where D indicates direction (north, south, east, or west):

    dd.mm.ssD

    dd:mm:ssD

    dd mm ssD

    dd°mm'ss"D

    If you are entering coordinates in decimal format and the location is south of the equator or west of the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, England, express the latitude or longitude as a negative value; for example, -15.75 degrees latitude and -64.25 degrees longitude.


    Alternatively using code (GetLocation):

    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application
    Dim objLoc As MapPoint.Location

    'Get the location of Los Angeles, CA, using latitude and longitude
    Set objLoc = objApp.ActiveMap.GetLocation(47.75399, -121.97436, 100)
    objLoc.GoTo

    Not tested the import data wizard, but I expect it will cater for Long/Lat.

    Need info on finding address using lat/long in VB

    I am trying to use Mappoint in VB. To start, I simply want to creat a form that you enter the lat/long and it will use mappoint to display the address in a label...Very simple it seems, but I cannot seem to get it to work. I've played with the GetLocation, but cannot seem to get the translated address of the lat/long.

    Please respond to my email address mikesachais@cswebmail.com.

    Thank you in advance.
