I just bought MapPoint 2010. I want to send post cards to folks within a mile of each store location. I have a database of people in the state with their addresses and I have the addresses of the stores. How do I do this? Here is what I think: I run all the addresses through mappoint to get the actual lat/long. How do I then ascertain which of the people live within the 1 mile radius? Is this a function of Mappoint or Access? I assume I run the addresses in Mappoint with just the unique identifier from the Access database and link the tables in some fashion.

What is the "formula" for figuring out the one mile radius?
