    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.

    I am still not sure why this is not working. My code looks a little like the following when I am trying to find a location.

    Set objLoc = objmap.Find(City & "," & State & "," & Country)

    I am setting objLoc to the location that it finds. Many other locations are found very easily using this method, it is just that some cities like Denver, San Francisco, and San Diego cant be found. Thanks for the help and I hope you have some other ideas.

    I don't know.. I remember MapPoint 2001 had some different methods for geocoding, which one are you using? The commmands were replaced in MapPoint 2002, you might order a trial version of that to see if it handles this better.
