All pushpins contain the same address after conversion to new Streets & Trips
wsupplee
Has anyone else experienced a problem converting pushpins from Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010 to 2011? When I converted my Accounts Push Pins, the company names remained correct, but all of the address blocks had the same address - every pushpins is the same!

The other pushpins all converted correctly.

Microsoft Support told me there is an issue with the program which won't be corrected till the next version!

Hi, I just downloaded Streets & Trips 2011 a few days ago, and it seems to have included all my pushpins from the 2008 version with the correct addresses where applicable. Your problem sounds much more severe, and who knows when the next version will be out. Good luck!

George,

In your Legends and Overview pane, right click on each of the pushpin types and hit "Hide all pushpin information" until all but "Accounts" pushpins are hidden. That's when I noticed the problem.

The "Accounts" pushpins are the ones I imported in from Outlook years ago. I have reloaded 2010 and they are all fine now.

"w", Since my previous S&T was 2008 I was not familiar with the more sophisticated pushpin arrangement in 2010 & 2011. So now I am learning all that and sure enough the addresses are all screwed up as you said. (Well almost said!).

How many pushpin sets are normal, I can see probably 10 or so. Is that reasonable?

George,

I found that it's only the pushpins in "Accounts". All of the others transferred over with no issue. All of the pins in Accounts though are screwed up.

Thanks w,

I will have to check these out further, but to be honest, I am quite discouraged with the antics of 2011 (and 2009). I have never used the GPS on Trips, instead I just use my Garmin StreetPilot and the Trips is just for planning. I will probably buy a new 2008, and remove the 2011. Thanks for your help!
