Would someone be kind enough to point me to a location where I can find directions to use 2 zip codes and return the mileage between them using vb6 and c# with Mappoint 2004? Many thanks.

The Help file has a lot of good code examples.

Also, to get started with coding, there are some tutorials here --

Working With Excel and MapPoint (http://www.mp2kmag.com/excel/)

In particular, see this one --

Developing With MapPoint and Excel, Part III - Distance Between Zip Codes (http://www.mp2kmag.com/update/mappoint.newsletter/2005-04-26/)

Although the help file does contain some C# examples, the best place for info on Programming MapPoint with C# is probably the book Programming MapPoint in .NET by Chandu Thota. We sell it here -- MapPoint 2011 North America, MapPoint 2010 Europe, Pushpin Tool, MapPoint for Dummies, Programming MapPoint in .NET (http://www.mapforums.com/mappoint.php), see the last item for $48.
