    Directions from Address (2002 (SP3))

    We have a database in which we store a number of members' addresses. Is there a way to open Mapquest or Yahoo Maps from Access and send the address data from a text box on a form so that MapQuest or Yahoo will map the locations and, secondly, provide driving directions from a main business location?

    I have just had a look at mapquest, and it looks to me that this will work.

    The terms you enter when searching for a map are added to the url. So I got the following url when looking at a map:
    http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searc...code=10029-7304

    It looks to me that all you need to do is build a URL like the above in code from the address info in your database, then use Application.followhyperlink to bring up the map.

    It is worth a try anyway.

    For directions try something similar.
    Regards
    John
