I am using MapPoint 2011 and would like to make pinpoints out of my search for "other places". Is there a function somewhere to do this? How about exporting "other places' to Excel and importing them back as data points? I can't find an export function for "other places" either.

Hi Steve,

When you say Other Places, do you mean the places built into MapPoint you can turn on/off by going to View | Show or Hide Places?

There's an old article on this topic and I've posted a couple tools in the Downloads section for doing this --

Not that long ago I helped someone convert the hotels into Pushpins so he could make comments/notes on the Pushpin locations. Is this the sort of thing you are trying to do?
