Service Call Area

P: n/a
Has anyone done something like this ....

In google maps, mapquest or something similar, divide a metropolitan city
and its suburbs into service areas. Then when a customer calls in to
schedule a service appointment and the service call is recorded in an Access
database, Access opens google maps, mapquest or something similar, gets the
service area and records it in the service call area.

Thanks!

Yes. You can use Microsoft MapPoint for this. It has an Automation
interface similar to that of the other Office products.
