Hello to everyone. I must say that I am impressed with the large number of users connected with this forum, especially with the number of active users. I am sure that there is a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience being shared here. I am relatively new to MapPoint, having only picked it up for the first time with the 2009 version. I have had some early, basic success and am still getting a feel for it. Hopefully, I will have some input that may be of use to another forum member some time soon.

Thanks for having what appears to be one of the better forums of this type that I have come across.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your kind words... my guess is that MapPoint has a more active community relative to user base than some other Microsoft products because mapping is cool :-) also, even though they tried to make the software as easy to use as possible, there is still a bit of a learning curve to understand the geographic concepts, more than say with word processing software like Word.

What industry do you work in or what do use MapPoint for?

Eric

Hi Eric,
I have a thread posted that tells a bit about my company's business and an issue facing us now. Here it is:
