    Importing Live Data into Mapoint

    Hi friends,
    I'm new hear and have a question on using the "Link Data Wizard". I have an excel spreadsheet that is updated daily with stores that go from inactive to active. When the locations are active the spreadsheet is market with an x. So only when the location is active I would like that information plotted in the Map. Has anyone ever worked on such a project? I'm trying to have the map update itself daily, instead of me doing the task. Thanks for your help.

    Cheers,

    - Gene

    Re: Importing Live Data into Mapoint

    Take a look at this article -- Automatically Publishing MapPoint Maps to Mobile Devices, I think there are some parts you can use.

    You see how the macro automatically updates the linked data, and saves the map and create a map image (which it then uploads via ftp).

    The macro could be automated via "Windows Tasks" so it happens automatically at night.

    It might take some troubleshooting and not be quite as easy at it sounds, but what you are wanting to do is definitely possible.

    Let us know how it goes and if you would like help with this.

    Happy Mapping!

    Eric
