MapPoint 2004 Control in Access

P: n/a

Hi All,

We have an Access XP application in which we utilize automation to
control MS MapPoint 2004. It works pretty well, for the most part.
Now, we would really like to use the MapPoint Control in our
application to give our users active maps to interact with, but the
control's help page explicitly states that it is NOT for use in
Access:

(With MapPoint 2004, the MapPoint Control is supported only in
Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 or later. This does not include Visual
Basic for Applications (for example, the Visual Basic for Applications
included with Microsoft Office).)

It does SEEM to work in Access, but I haven't really given it a run
for its money there. Is anybody else using it? Where have you run into
trouble? Any stories of experience with this much appreciated.

Thanks,
-Tom

I read this too. We satisfied the users using Automation and running
MapPoint full-screen as a separate app, thus avoiding the activex
control.
Sounds to me MSFT is saying: it don't work. Don't come complain to us
if you find out the hard way. I would heed their warning.

FWIW I'd ask over in the microsoft.public.mappoint newsgroup. Or do a search at
gruops.google.com using the advanced search screen limiting your search to the
prevoiusly mentioned newsgroup.

Tony,

Good idea. I posted over there and found one person who is doing
what I want to be doing. He seems happy with the results. (Michael R.
Mattys - Mattys MapLib for Microsoft MapPoint -
http://www.mattysconsulting.com) We will forge ahead with trying this
out.
