View Full Version : How to for dumbies

Can someone tell me in simple English how to add the "business name" to the address in MP 2006?

Or can it even be done. I have had MAPPOINT since 2000 thinking that each successive version would have a simple way of doing it.

Right now being disgusted I Write in the name behind the address on the print-out.

Now don't tell me about "Push pins" because they aren't on my print-outs.

To give you an example of just how simple I need it, It took me over 40 minutes and three trys to post this first post.

I only hope that should someone have the answer I can find my way back to this spot.

I spect that you're not interested in programming this :turned:

If you set your columns up in Excel to Name and Businessname,
along with the address, city, state, and zip columns,
then you can use Name as Name1 and business name as Name2 in the
Data Import Wizard.

On the last page of the Wizard, it asks you which columns should be visible in the balloon callout and you'll want to select BusinessName.

Does that help at all?

Sure, put business name as name and contact as name1
Then the name of the pushpin should be the buinessname and it
will show up that way in the directions
