    Hello,

    (I use Mappoint's ocx in a VB6 program).

    I would like to retrieve geographics coordinates of pushpins location.

    I saw that in the Mappoint's software, it's possible to have geographics coordinates when you choose this option. That's why I think it's possible to make it programmaticaly.

    I try to use a program given in a article in the site, but it doesn't function very well. Coordinates are wrong.
    Does anyone have another idea ?

    Could you help me ?

    What's wrong with the coordinates? Are they close? Perhaps you are expecting a different coordinate system?

    sorry

    Sorry Eric It was an algorithmic problem. First I look for a place with the adress and a retrieve it's GPS coordinates.

    Then I try to place it with his GPS coordinates in order to check.

    The problem was in the first stage.

    Thank you and sorry.
