    Import data from a file into Map Point using VB Code?.....

    We have our own custom software system made using Visual Basic 6.0 on a SQL Server database structure. We are trying to import customer addresses from our database (or seperate file) into map point, within our program using the map point active x control. So far no luck on how to read the data into map point...
    Any help or example code?...

    Thanks
    ~Matt

    Have you read the help documentation, specificall about the ImportData() and LinkData() methods? There are worked examples, etc. I use long/lat, [not addresses] and CSV, but it works fine with code quite similar to the examples. By tweaking the various array params at the end of the methods, you can also get different pins / legends based on user defined values in a column of the data; works great.
