    Manual Placements and Counties

    I actually have 2 questions.
    1. When I have to manually place a pin to mark a location (the street does not exist in Map Point), how do I get the corrected information out, instead of the original information that was imported? At least the lat/lon?
    2. Is there a way to get a listing of all counties for a state, along with the cities and zip codes?

    My company was using Streets 2005 + until this week, so I am a Newbie with Map Point. I appreciate any help.
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    1.
    - Firtst find the pushpin by name (you should give it a name when you manually drop it on the map otherwise code cannot find it, unless there is only 1 pushpin then there is no problem).

    - then the pushpin has a Location propertie

    - from the Location you can calculate lat / long

    For the calculation you can do a search on this forum to 'calcpos'.

    I misspoke. I have imported a set of addresses using the Pushpin option with colored dots. Some of the addresses MapPoint cannot find. I find the correct location, draw in a road (approx.) and manually move the dot. Now I need to get the lat/lon out for this new location. I have multiple colored dots, and they do all have a name. Our customer number is the name. Are you saying to do a find on that dot and then follow the "calcpos"?

    Thanks.
    Thanks.
