Export Microsoft MapPoint Route Waypoints

MPRouteWriter: Export Microsoft® MapPoint® Route WayPoints to MS Excel®

RouteWriter's main panel

Have you tried to import or export route pushpins with Microsoft MapPoint, only to find that MapPoint refuses to preserve their route order?

If so, then MPRouteWriter will solve your problems. MPRouteWriter exports MapPoint route waypoints to Microsoft Excel in their route order. Waypoints can be cross-referenced with pushpins, allowing the pushpin information to be also exported.

MPRouteWriter also includes the MPRouteReader add-in. MPRouteReader allows you to create MapPoint routes from pushpins using a pre-determined order. This order is specified using one of the pushpin data fields - typically a sequence number imported from Microsoft Excel or Access.
