    Switching all names of pushpin set on in one go

    I've been using Mappoint for some time now. currently using 2006 version. We use it mainly to import excel address lists of retial stores that we are visiting on multi site rollouts to work out the most effecient routes for the fitters.

    My question is "is there a way to switch on all the names within a pushpin set in 1 go rather than having to click on each one individually and show name?"

    Re: Switching all names of pushpin set on in one go

    I don't think it's possible to switch pushpin set balloons on and off all at once using the 2006 package (nor 2009 for that matter). I think it might be possible with 2010, and I'm looking forward to exploring that when the EU version is released. For 2006 I think 2 possibilities are:

    1. Invest in the excellent Pushpin Tool
    Pushpin Tool: Manage your Microsoft MapPoint Pushpins

    2. Automate MapPoint to do this with some very straightforward vba code.

    The above screen shot is from a review of the new MapPoint 2010 Europe / North America. The new version is able to show/hide pushpin sets, and show/hide information balloons.

    Thank you both for your responses.

    Forums use is new to me!

    Davidb - I'll download a trial version of the pushpin tool and see if this helps. If it does it will be a small price to pay for all the time it will save.

    Martin - Looks like 2010 could be the answer moving forward. Any idea on a release date for the European version?
