    Selecting multiple pins and land

    Hello, I have two quiestions.

    1. I am working with routes, assuming I have route A and route B and they overlap I want to select numerous pins from route B and in properties and change it to route A. Because I'm dealing with hundreds of pins it makes it difficult to do it one at a time. Anyway around it?

    2. If I upload several stops without longitude and latitude and map them out can I in any way export them with that information included?

    How is it that you have multiple routes - do you have multiple maps open at the same time in different windows?

    For item 2, you'll need to write a custom export routine, or use something like Gilles Kohl's PinsToFile COM AddIn.

    I uploaded two sheets from excel each one having a different route and then assigned different pushpins to them. I see the overlap and change the pushpin to reflect the correct route. I may have 50 pins in the wrong territory so I would like to know if there is a way of selecting the at once and going into properties and changing the pin?

    Hi,

    You have to select them in a loop. For speed you can have a linked list with all references to the pushpins in your application.

    Ok - I see

    You don't actually have a route per se. You have a pushpin map with two datasets, presumably with different pushpin colors/symbols.

    If you have programming skills, you can write a function that will allow you to:

    -draw a shape around a set of pushpins you wish to move
    -use the QueryShape method to select those pushpins within the shape
    -move those pins to the other dataset using the MoveTo(NewDataset) method
