How to make a POI file in Excel, and then convert it to use in Streets & Trips?
DanTheDriver
Two questions really.

A: I can't find an explanation, even though it is most likely here some place, how do you make a POI file in Excel and then convert it to use in Microsoft Streets and Trips? Also, can you take the POI files somehow out of S&T and put them in Excel?

And B: Are older POI sets working OK in Streets & Trips 2011 when copy and pasted over from 2009?

Ok got the whole Excel thingy worked out as to importing the info. Works pretty good.
The one thing is the taking the file out of S&T and being able to export it over to Excel so you can look at it and make changes as needed.

My next problem is making sound files play. I can get an image to appear using:
file:C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Dan/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Boo.jpg
This works just perfect.

but using the same format to play a sound file does not seem to be working:
file:C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Dan/My%20Documents/My%20Music/1234.mp3
Any Ideas?

Seems to me we went over this not that long ago.

Did you check the S&T help file on "hyperlinks".

Your correct. I used the info there to finally find the time to figure out as much as I can.
The problem I am having now is that I can get to any file but a sound file to work. For the life of me can't figure out why.
