    Showing multiple routes

    I have searched here on how to show one central site with multiple routes to multiple points and this is not a native task for MapPoint 2004.

    For example, I want to plot a company headquarters, plot the employee's addresses, make a route from each employee to the site to analyze commute time/distance and compare it to some data we have on each person to see if they should or should not be working at home.

    What type of programming is involved in adding this ability and where should I start looking on how to do this. My company is cheap so buying a tool is not an option, I would need to build it myself. Any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

    There are some cheap tools - cheap compared to the cost of MapPoint.
    Eg. my MileCharter product will compute multiple mileages to one/many points and is only $50. Output is to an Excel spreadsheet.

    If you're happy with Visual Basic, then the MapPoint documentation shows you how to compute routes between points. If you don't want any bells and whistles it isn't too difficult - but it will take a few hours effort.
    How much is your time worth? Or would the learning effort be useful?

    I would actually need to show the routes on the map for presentation purposes. Right now All I have is the trial version to see if MapPoint could be of some use to my company and we are going to by the full version so hopefully there will be documentation there.

    As far as myself learning how to program the add-ins my company would rather have me do that. But I will check your tools out to see if they fall into a good cost range if it will help make us more money.
