Hi Experts,
I have come a long way with this program so far, but I am really stuck now.  Here is the line of code that is throwing an error "method or data member not found"...

objroute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindAddressResults(rs2("OrigAddress1"), rs2("OrigCity"), rs2("OrigState"), rs2("OrigZip").Item(1))

The rest of the code is below.  Help, please.  Thanks.

Laura :-)
Private Sub cmbRunPSIQuery_Click()
'On Error GoTo Err_cmbRunPSIQuery_Click
    
    
    Dim rs As Recordset
    Dim rs2 As DAO.Recordset
    Dim stDocName As String
    
    Dim oApp As MapPoint.Application
    
    stDocName = "qryTripManifestforPrinttoFilePSIInvoice"
        
    Set oApp = CreateObject("MapPoint.Application")
    
    CurrentDb().Execute "DELETE * FROM tblMapquestMiles"
    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select * From tblMapquestMiles")
    Set rs2 = CurrentDb().OpenRecordset("Select * from qryTripManifestforPrinttoFilePSIInvoiceCopy Where VendorID = " & cboVendorID.Value & " and (TripDate >= #" & txtStartDate.Value & "# and TripDate <=#" & txtEndDate.Value & "#)", dbOpenSnapshot)
    
    
 
    Stop
    Do While Not rs2.EOF
    
        Set objMap = oApp.NewMap
        Set objroute = oApp.ActiveMap
        
        'Add route stops and calculate the route
        objroute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindAddressResults(rs2("OrigAddress1"), rs2("OrigCity"), rs2("OrigState"), rs2("OrigZip").Item(1))
        objroute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindAddressResults(rs2("DestAddress1"), rs2("DestCity"), rs2("DestState"), rs2("DestZip").Item(1))
        
        objroute.Calculate
        
        rs.AddNew
        rs("TripNumber") = rs2("TripNumber")
        rs("RoundedMiles") = objroute.Distance
        rs.Update
        
        rs2.MoveNext
    Loop
    
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set rs2 = Nothing
    
    oApp.Quit
        
    DoCmd.OpenQuery stDocName, acNormal, acEdit
    
Exit_cmbRunPSIQuery_Click:
    Exit Sub
    
Err_cmbRunPSIQuery_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmbRunPSIQuery_Click:
    
End Sub

linbayzak,

I can't see where you actually declared: objroute

For example:
Dim objroute as XXXX

No, I didn't declare them.  My boss started this code out as a function.  I'll try to declare them and see what happens. Thanks :-)

Ok, I declared:
Dim objroute As MapPoint.Route
Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map

and I still get the same error...it always stops on .Item and is grayed out instead of highlighted yellow.  Any ideas what is wrong? Thanks :-)

linbayzak,

The error basically means that ".Item" is not a member of a certain Object.

I don't know MapPoint VBA, so you you will have to google the statements/keywords for help with the syntax.

see if this will work

        objroute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindAddressResults(rs2("OrigAddress1"), rs2("OrigCity"), rs2("OrigState"), rs2("OrigZip")) (1)
        objroute.Waypoints.Add objMap.FindAddressResults(rs2("DestAddress1"), rs2("DestCity"), rs2("DestState"), rs2("DestZip")) (1)

Hi Experts,

You were right, the object wasn't declared.  Yes, Capricorn1, that line will work, part of the problem was that I had the closing parentheses at the end instead of after OrigZip and DestZip.  At any rate, it is working.  Thanks
