    Import postcodes and name each one with a code

    Hello,

    I have been asked to plot the postcodes for my company's various locations on a map and then show a 3 letter code alongside their pin, so the viewer knows which location is which.

    I have managed to import and show the postcodes but I am struggling to show the short code name alongside the pin.

    I would be much obliged if someone could help please.

    Thanks
    Richard

    Hi Richard

    You might be better off posting queries like this in the “Mappoint 2006/2009 Discussion” area as they can get overlooked in the “General Chat”. I think the best approach would be using labels, which have recently been discussed in this thread.

    Simple State map - show only numeric values - not an option??

    It means a little bit of excel vba programming. Alternatively you could activate all the balloons for the pins but the more you have the less manageable it becomes.
