    Importing Lat and Long directly to Pushpin Dataset?

    Hi,
    It seems that when importing data, you must specify atleast a few address parts to translate into a pushpin set. All the data i have in my DB is Lat/Long coords. Is it possible to turn this into a pushpin set without programmatically processing the dataset and manually adding the pushpins?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    You can just make a text file like:

    "
    Name,Latitude,Longitude
    Entry 1 Name,33.9817,-84.08405
    Entry 2 Name, 33.8732,-84.03923
    etc
    "

    And then use the Import Data Wizard to make a new Pushpin set this way. You can also use a tool like gpxexchange if you have a bunch of waypoints to import in gpx format.
