Hi,

Forgive if this is a daft question but Im pretty new to MapPoint...

Is it possible to have one location and then have MapPoint tell me the distance from this one location to multiple pushpins?

I don't want one route with many stops, I want the mileage from one location to each of the pushpins individually.

Can I do this using MapPoint 2006?

Thanks a lot

Steve

Hi,

Yes very easy to do. Calculate route from your point to pushpin1, then from you r point to pushpin2, etc. So then you have all distances from your point to the individual pushpins.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you know if this can this be done automatically?

I have an area with over 150 pushpins and 1 'home' pushpin. I want a list of mileages from my 'home' pushpin to each of the 150 destinations.

I know I can do each one individually but if I can do them automatically to obtain a list it would save me a lot of time.

Thanks a lot

Hi Steve,

Sorry I was not realizing you meanth with the standalone executable. I dont think it can do it. It is easy to do making a custom program where MapPoint is used as sutch.

Also John Meyer developed a batch driving distance calculator that I've used endlessly in my work. You can buy it for $30 at Support-PC.com

Our MileCharter product also does this. It costs a little bit more, but it can also do a lot more - eg. many to many; or "only report the closest" (this latter feature is only in the Professional Edition).
