Import and Export Route Microsoft® MapPoint® Route Information


MPRouteWriter is an add-in utility for Microsoft MapPoint that exports route information to either Microsoft Excel or a text file. Waypoints are exported with travel times and distances. It is also possible to export matching pushpins and their data fields; as well as rest breaks.

MPRouteWriter also incorporates MPRouteReader. This performs the opposite action, ie. it imports pushpins into route waypoints in a specified order. Both are available directly from MapPoint's Tools menu.

MPRouteWriter requires a PC running Windows 7, Windows 8, XP, or Vista; and Microsoft MapPoint 2006 (or later). MPRouteWriter v3 also requires the Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework (free download from the Microsoft website). Microsoft Excel is also recommended.
