    Map Point programming with VBA

    Does anyone have any links to resources that describe the API and/or methods required to talk directly to Map Point? I am currently exporting a CSV file from an Access application, but that is one-way communication with no way to pull the results back into my application, leaving it with very limited usefulness.

    I am prepared to fully integrate Map Point, assuming that points can be sent to Map Point, optimized there, then retrieved back into my application. However, I cannot seem to find any description of the references that need to be established in Access to talk to Map Point nor the methods used.

    Any links including VBA examples would be most helpful.

    Re: Map Point programming with VBA

    Well, in the meantime, I dug through the help files in Map Point and finally found what I needed when I searched on "programming". I found several bits of VB/VBA sample code and the descriptions of the various collections & methods - enough to get me started, at least. It described how to instantiate the MapPoint object & use some of the methods. By drilling down, I think I can find all the required methods.
