    Not easily. However with MapPoint 2006, it is easy to go in the other direction - from address to coordinate.

    Try searching the articles on this site for "Reverse Geocoding". Basically you have to perform a search at lots of surrounding coordinates until you 'hit' something'.

    Sorry - too early in the day, I thought you were talking about desktop MapPoint!

    re. Web Service: I'll let someone else answer, I do not know.

    You can do it using FindServiceSoap.GetLocationInfo. Check out the SDK at MSDN.

    Did you initialize FindService and set the credentials for the service? You have to do it for all "Services". As far as I know there is no restriction on the evaluation account as far as accessing various services is concerned.
