    programmatically load a custom symbol

    Is there a method to programmatically load a custom symbol, a BMP file for example, and associate the symbol with a pushpin. I know I can do this manually by importing a custom symbol but have not been able to find a similar programmatic method.

    See Symbols.Add in the help file.. here's a line from an example in there:

    Set objSymbol = objMap.Symbols.Add(objApp.Path + "\Samples\CAirport.bmp")
