How do arrange territories boundaries by street? The smallest geographical option is by census but this is not precise enough.Adam, I'm afraid mapping by census is indeed the smallest unit that is supported. Gilles [MVP]. (Please reply to the group, not via email)
Is it possible to use the "Find Nearby Places" within territories. I know how to use the "find nearby places" normally around a Point, but is it possible to, for example find all the restaurants within a given territory boundaries?Jimb, I'm afraid no - I know of no way to achieve this.

I want to be able to create a territory based on postcode districts that a user types in, e.g. BR1, BR2. I create pins and add them to a dataset, but they only ever display as pins, how can I make the dataset a "territory" instead of pins. importterritories?OK, I did that, created a file on the fly and imported that works fine, but the problem I have now is that some of the postal regions appear in the north of the uk, when then should be in the show? I notice that when you use the manual territory creation the map displays the districts, how do I get my map to display those postal districts?Hi Paul There is a casing problem in MPEurope2006. You'll have to enter the postcode names in lower case ie br1 instead of BR1. Rgds
click on saved maps to open them without having to open the program first?Do you have that problem with every MapPoint 2004 file, or just with one? What are the details of that error? be brought to a web page with the resolution. Difficult to say without knowing more about the problem - if it is only this single file, could you save again from MapPoint 2006 and overwrite send the error report it says: Preparing error report. Connecting to server. Checking for status of this problem. Error reporting completed. There are checkmarks in front of the first three, and then there is a button we've never had trouble opening the files with the 2004 version.I have this same problem, any solution yet? I'm sure Microsoft tested opening previous version .ptm, what'
I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this problem. When I first started using MP 2004 I created territories in Southern Ontario based on Census Subdivisions, everything seemed to work great except for a few issues. NOW when I open the same file in MP 2006 the census subdivisions seem to have changed and therefore the file is not loaded properly. Is there anyway to have MP 2006 open the older file or is this just something weird on my system?Hi HotRod Can you send me a couple of the files? plarsonpma(AT)hotmail(DOT)com -PaulPaul I apologise when I returned to my office this morning I discovered that my mail server will not allow me to send mail to your account. Thanks for having a look into this for me.
Hi, I am trying to link MapPoint to DB2 using UDL file. When I use linking wizard in MapPoint and point it to the my UDL for DB2 ODBC connection file I see actual tables in DB2, but when I selected any table or view and press "Next" I got message : "There was a problem openning MyDBName,MyTableName" .Did somebody tell me what the problem?Howdy Mic, i have this problem with an oracle .udl file too MS SQL DB is work fine buy the data is in oracle :-(( Bye KraeckelHi Kraeckel, I am still have the same problem , but I am work around - link DB2 table to Access and work with MapPoint using query for this table.
I have several people with different territories some overlap. Is there a way to overlap the territories, so that more than one person has a particular zip code? And . For a particular territory, how can I export the zip codes within that territory?Not really. But you can work around it by selecting your territories dataset as aggregates. i.e. If Paul and Terry both work in zipcode 48912, then have only one row for zip 48912 named "Paul/Terry". If you have a TSQL-compatible database, I can give you pointers on how to aggregate the territory-name-strings. Exporting (out-of-the-box) is pretty much an all or nothing process. If you have a ZipCode column in your dataset, it will be exported along with the other columns. Paul
("44.188727 11.210063" for example) I have stored all these names in a map but the problem is, that if I try to retrieve a pushpin in another method: // the index is found in a EditBox 39;t found .any suggestion??? Many many thanks to everyone who would give me a hint in solving the problem. :-) H.S.Do you have any control over this? If memory serves, there have been problems group, not via email) Actually it is: I have just changed it! Done. There is still the problem that adding manually is quite slower than using the import function of DataSet object. If I use the MapPoint with my names. I'm not still able to do this programmatically because I have a problem in creating the VARIANT input param containing the fields that I want to be imported. I post the
object is created locally as wanted. CreateObject(classID,""). Does anyone has a clue what may cause the problem and how to solve it?Not really, this sounds pretty strange. Anything in the event log? Are you familiar reference to the MapPoint instance MapPoint.Application m_MapPointApplication = null; // Later, e.g. in Form_Load m_MapPointApplication = new MapPoint.ApplicationClass(); Same problem?

Is it possible to import a table file with polygon information and use it in Mappoint to create your own territory from your own set of data? Thank you.No, not as far as I am aware of - you can create custom territories, but they have to be made of the smallest building blocks (e.g. census tracts), not arbitrary boundaries. Gilles [MVP].
