    Link data problem

    Hi,

    We recently discovered that Mappoint ads a lot of usefull functions to our Access database. At the moment for example we're plotting the locations of our customers on the map of the Netherlands by using the Street Address.
    The only problem is that around 10% of the locations exist "double" (try for example to find "Stoepemaheerd 21") so that we would still manually have to select several hundreds of addresses. In 99% of the cases the two "identical" addresses are less than 100m apart on the map so we would prefer to have Mappoint automatically select the first address it finds.
    Does anybody know a way to do this?

    Thanks for the help,

    Joris

    Hi,

    I dont think this can be done (correct me if I'm wrong). What _can_ be done is that you use VBA in your access environment and find the addresses yourself using the mappoint API or ActiveX.
