    Thanks Wilfried, YHM (at your gmail account).

    I now have a Word doc listing the original 2002 pushpins and the new 2004 pushpins. The listings give the pushpin numbers.

    I've emailed it to Eric suggesting it is added as an article for reference, but in the meantime people can email me and I can send a copy.

    Hey, guys.

    We have the full symbol list broken into individual bitmaps. For the color graduated symbols like large / small circles, large / small squares, etc. we also created eight additional colors for each of the symbols. Basically, you can thematically shade using 16 colors of small squares, 16 colors of big squares and so forth. There's 289 bitmaps total.



    You can download the .zip file from our web site, under Support > Software Downloads all the way at the bottom of the page.

    Those aren't the standard symbols that come with MapPoint - which is what I was after,

    A series of flag symbols were added to MapPoint 2004.


    MapPoint 2004 has a red flag symbol.
    Click on the pushpin symbol on the drawing toolbar (usually at the bottom). This will pop the pushpin symbol selector.
    The selector also has a button labelled "Import Custom Symbol...".
    Press this and you can import your own symbol designs.

    Thanks for your response Richard. But I done see a red flag in the 256 available symbol in Mappoint 2004. Also is there any was to programatically from VB code add a new symbol?
    Thanks in advance.

    The help for MapPoint 2004 weren't updated, so they only show 256 pushpins, when in reality there are over 300.

    I compiled a Word doc listing them all and their numbers (see above in this thread). Send me a message with your email, and I can email it to you.

    Yes you can add symbols programmatically, use the Add() method on the Symbols collection (in turn a property of the Map object).

    Eric has now published the word doc as an article on the mp2kmag site:
