    Multiple Entries for the same postcode

    Dear All

    This is my first posting so please excuse any non-techie phrases that I may use.

    I have been using MapPoint 2004 at work for about the last 6 months. We use it to plot drivetimes and competitor locations for possible Trade Counters. I have come across a problem that I am wondering whether there is a way around. The problem is that when I import the competitor details (there are around 6000), it only ever adds one entry per postcode. If I right click on the entry I get a pop-up box showing all competitors for that location but what I actually want is for it to map each and every competitor.

    Is this possible??

    Many Thanks

    Georgie

    p.s. I would appreciate a prompt reply as this is currently priority number 1 for me as the Cap-Ex submissions need to be in by Thursday 10th November 2005.

    This is possible

    Hey George

    Yes this is possible but what you seem to want is possible too. You'll have to tell us a little more about the nature of the import parameters. It sounds as if you are doing a something that is causing the competitors to be geocoded to postal code. If you have the complete address (street address) then you will be able to geocode most locations to the exact street location.

    Look forward to more details....

    Ciao,
