    Unhappy MapPoint 04 - Legend Question

    I am not sure is this is the correct section of the forum. If not please reply and let me know which section is more appropriate.

    I am writing a VBA Excel app that takes formatted tables and automatically builds either territory or data maps based on information in the table. These could be just one or two maps or three hundred hence the automation...

    I need to find out if it is possible to accomplish 1 of 2 things:

    1) Order the quintiled counties data so I can predict the color of the shaded areas -- using color scheme 15 all of the time user cannot change it

    2) Is it possible to save the legend and then copy map and legend to a Power Point presentation. Currently using objMap.CopyMap to copy to the clipboard.

    Or easier maybe...Is there any way to save the map as a gif or jpg...like a screen shot? I am a little desparate here as I cannot find any resources for this.


    I am fairly new to Map Point development so any and all advice is appreciated.

    Thanks In Advance,

    Re: MapPoint 04 - Legend Question

    Thanks for the help Wilfried. I am using the following code:

    If OutPath = "" Then OutPath = DataPath
    If InStr(strSheet, OutPath) = 0 Then
    objMap.SaveAs OutPath & "\" & strSheet & ".jpg"
    Else
    objMap.SaveAs strSheet & ".jpg"
    End If


    the only problem is that the file is now saving with following extension:

    A46223D.jpg.ptm

    I guess i just need to work with the PTM format. Thanks tho.

    Hi,

    No you can save it as HTML. Then a HTML page is generated and also a JPG. The HTML has then a link to the JPG, but you can delete the HTML and use the picture.
