Wow, I haven't tried it yet, but that looks pretty slick.

I think the seminal work on this was the Washenberger article on MP2Kmag.com --

Extracting the Mappoint 2002 Points of Interest - MapPoint Articles - MP2K Magazine (http://www.mp2kmag.com/a53--poi.points.interest.mappoint.html)

published within the first year I took over MP2Kmag.. :-)

There is also a tool in the MapForums Downloads section ($99 per year) with source code that will do this for an arbitrarily large area, it uses Access for de-duping.

Eric,

Our "BETA-Tester"-customers can use a "secret short cut" to activate the export from selected areas (http://www.wh-en.mappoint-tools.info/GA/scr/html/ShapeCreator/Grids.htm) and free defined polygons (http://www.wh-en.mappoint-tools.info/GA/index.htm#page=html/ShapeManager/1-Polygon_freistellen.htm).
There is no limitation.
