    You could certainly code to export the values in the textbox using the objShape.text property, but as for already easy in Mappoint, I don't think you can do this.

    jdwhyte is referring to the object model. This is covered in the help documentation in MapPoint.
    Most people access it using Visual Basic.

    Anything that supports COM (eg. C++) should work - personally I use C++.

    If you're looking to hire someone to export all text boxes to a file for import into Excel, I (or someone else on this forum) could be hired to do it...
