    It can do that...

    You will need to write some VBA code in Excel, but you can do what you describe. Suggest you refer to article on coding MapPoint from Excel at http://www.mp2kmag.com/a124--excel.udf.mappoint.html

    This article refers to creating an Excel function but the principles can be used in any VBA code.

    I have written a full application for route planning using this logic and while very crude coding, it works well. (At some stage Richard might get round to publishing it;).
