    Can someone point me in the direction of Code to apply to googple maps that are in a access Form.

    What I am trying to do is Setup a tour of addresses that in the data base from a starting point to the last address.

    Or if it is known of another way to make this happen.

    It would be useful if you could explain a bit what you have found.

    I am sure it would be of interest to lots of others.

    Apologies John you are correct.


    I've built an Access data base (still fine tuning, as the end users are not sure of what that want or do not want). The data base is to be used for the delivery of Subscriber publications.

    With the use of MS Map Point and an Add-In called Route Writer I am able to setup delivery routes with turn-by-turn directions. At present the route and turn-by-turn are on seporate sheets. Through some coding I plan to combine the two into one route sheet with delivery addresses and turn-by-turn direction.

    I am also able to send the turn-by-turn directions to the carriers GPS or cellphone from Map Point. If need be a map can also be sent.

    So far all is working well, everyone seems to be happy.

    Deliveries are being made with a less then 1 percent recovery.

    I've talked with others that are using Map Point, they have their system working. sadly they wont share their code. Oh well.

    Using Access 2007, Excel 2007 and Map Point 2010 with GPS. The above will also work earlier versions.

    Thanks for posting that.

    My quick look around just now suggests there is still now Australian version of Map Point.

    I'm told that you can use Google Earth as well. I have not tried it yet.
