    Renaming a stop?

    Hello -

    I have done a few searches and cannot locate an answer - if it has already been posted, I apologize.

    I use MapPoint 2006 and have several routes already in place (upgraded from MP2004). The problem is, all of the stops on these routes are only listed as the address:



    What I need is instead of it saying "1455 Howell Ave, etc" I want it to say "Brooksville Nursing Home" or whatever text I choose. Is there an easy way to do this from MapPoint 2006? It seems like there should be a simple "Rename" feature but I cannot seem to locate it. Thanks for any help!

    Scott

    Hi Scott,

    I wonder ... if you show the Legend and Overview (CTRL+G)
    and right-click on your dataset to show properties and choose
    the balloon tab -> is the a field in there that isn't checked
    which could be the name?

    If not, you could export the whole dataset to Excel, add the
    column Name, and then re-import to a new map.

    Thanks for the reply Mike.

    I am not sure what you mean by the "dataset". I see one thing that says "Data Set Properties" but it is ghosted. So is "Export to Excel" (see below).
    I think I need to be in some kind of different mode to be able to export. And when I am in that mode, I can probably look at the Dataset properties also.

    Hi,

    Try going to the View menu and choosing Legend and Overview.
    There you'll see the datasets you're using.

    I must be missing something - viewing Legends and Overview takes me to this screen, but Data Set and Export are still ghosted -

    On the Legend and Overview Pane are the datasets,
    such as 'My PushPins.' Right-click on the icon and you'll
    see the context menu where you can select Properties.

    I can't type worth beans.

    If you need more help, go to my site and contact me

    As it turns out, there were no pushpins on this map at all!

    The stops were simply typed into the Find dialog box and
    added to a route and the map was saved. I found this to be
    rather unusual, so I wrote a COM Addin to solve the problem:

    It can be downloaded here:
    www.mattysconsulting.com/demos/rt2xl.dll
    It doesn't do anything for maps with pushpins.

    I hope anyone who needs such a thing will find it useful
