Also, i have a dispatch system and i am trying to import the customer list into map point. the hurdle i have there is, it pulls the billing address and not the ship to.

What does your customer list look like? Is it in Excel, Access, an ODBC-aware database?


I've no idea about Nextel phones: Do they have an NMEA compatible GPS capability? If so, then yes you could plug it into a laptop running MapPoint and track your location.

If you mean Microsoft's Location Server services, you will probably have to contact Microsoft directly to find out if Nextel phones are supported.

i can export a customer list to excel. But the database ODBC aware.

Also there is a gentleman with posting in this forum that has the same problems and questions I have.

In the data import wizard you can explicitly set the columns to read for the street, city, state,etc. Use this to select the correct address.

Or if you're using ODBC then you can use a SELECT statement that pulls the correct address.
