    I am posting this again, because I am still unable to figure out this problem and I was hoping someone knew what was going on. ..... I am using MapPoint 2001 and Visual Basic(6.0). I am using information from a database to plot customer locations on a map of the U.S.. The problem is that MapPoint does not recongnize some of the city names. For instance, it is not able to find Denver, Colorado. However, when I attempt this by going straight through MapPoint, it works fine. MapPoint even finds some very small towns. Are there any ideas on why this might be happening? Thanks for any help.

    When you do findAdressResult on Denver, Colorado, most likely, the return would be a place location, not address.



    To get valid results, 1st, check "If objLoc.StreetAddress Is Nothing" if true, then use objLoc.Name to get the lace information.



    This is how it works in Mappoint 2002.

    Thanks for your help. Sorry it took so long for me to get back, but I was on vacation. The one problem is that I dont have access to MapPoint 2002 here at work. We are strictly working with 2001. Here is some example data. I am importing this data as a Microsoft Access Database. The information looks like the following. The Fields I have are Name, City, State, and Country. Under there i have the following information for the cities which wont plot through VB and MP2001.
    1---name: Tom Sheer, city: Denver, state: Colorado, country: USA; 2---name: Mike Lester, city: San Francisco, state: California, country: USA; 3---name: Dave Duncan, city: San Diego, state: California, country: USA

    Thanks for any help. I really appreciate it.

    What are the specifics methods you are using? Can you send a set of sample records? If need be I can dig up and install an old copy of MapPoint 2001 to help you research this, but I think it would be more efficient for you to try MapPoint 2002 first. - Eric
