    When importing from MS Excel .csv files into MapPoint 2002 to create pushpins, I always seem to get skipped records. I have been through all the postcodes and I definitely know all the postcodes on the .csv files are correct. Why won't some of the locations show up? Is there anyway to update MapPoint's postcode database so every postcode will show up? If not, how can i place pushpins manually?

    Thanks

    This is a very common issue. Postcodes in some countries change at a rate of 10% per year, so even though the postcodes in your database may have been 100% correct when they were entered, they are unlikely to be 100% correct now. The same is true for the postcode data in MapPoint - it is a snapshot which may have been close to 100% correct at one time, but it is no longer 100% correct and going more out of date each day.



    Unfortunately, there is no method for updating the internal MapPoint postcode data. There are some workarounds - like geocoding on street address instead of postcode (assuming you have full addresses), or getting your data geocoded in another program and then mapping your records in MapPoint using the lat/long value resulting from this geocoding work.
