    I need to know if you have or know of an add-in for phone AREA CODE and EXCHANGE. In the Territories Wizard the same way you can choose zipcode I need to be able to select AREA CODE and EXCHANGE. Will you have this or do you know anyone that does ??



    Thanks

    The new Territories feature in MapPoint 2002 only works with boundaries
    included in our map - ZIP codes, counties, states, etc. There are no
    phone area codes or exhange boundaries in MapPoint. The only possible
    solution would be to find a data provider that has this boundary data in
    ESRI or MapInfo format. With the ESRI/MapInfo file converter sample code
    that Microsoft will be releasing soon, you could bring this data in and
    overlay it on the map. You could then for instance use these boundaries
    to extract data that was geocoded onto the map (on street address, ZIP,
    lat/long or some other geocoding supported by MapPoint) to Excel for
    analysis. But you would not be able to use these imported boundaries in
    the same way that you use MapPoint territories. MapPoint doesn't really
    know what these boundaries mean, they are just named drawing objects on
    top of the map.
