    Lat/Long conversion

    Hello,
    I am a newbie and just starting to work with an inherited database. I am trying to plot pushpins on the map but the lat/long is an a different format than mappoint. Sample: The Access database has a location with a longitude of 122379007 and latitude of 47243156. The address is in Tacoma, Washington and according to the location sensor should be around 47.24204 North and 122.36469 West. How can I convert this to a Mappoint compatible format?

    Thanks
    New Mappoint user

    Hi,

    If you look carefully:

    Code:
    122379007  122.36469 
    47243156    47.24204
    Then I see only a small error. Your access database seems to be in 1/100000 degree
