    street address limit

    MapPoint allows only a maximum of 10,000 street addresses to be mapped. It then maps zip code address only. Is there a way around this. I want to map 40,000 unique street addresss in one map.

    Can anyone please help?

    I think you can separate your list into four lists and then bring them in as four separate datasets.. have you tried that?

    Thanks for your reply. I tried that and thought it was working, but when I checked the location of the pins, I noticed that they were mapped to the zip code rather than to the street address. I am going to try that again however...maybe I didn't pay close enough attention when going through the importing wizard process. I will let you know.

    It worked! I divided my database in to four subsets of less than 10,000 records. Created new map from group one and than imported group two, then group three etc. and it worked. I now have one map with nearly 40,000 records mapped to their street address. I think I just wasn't paying attention during the import wizard and was mapping to zip code rather than address.

    Thanks for getting me to try this again!

    Is one dataset really limited to 10,000 records?
    I didn't realise, thanks for the tip this would have caused me a world of problems later on if I hadn't known!
