Hello

Bing Maps can be a little confusing and how you approach what you have asked depends on a great number of things. Would you mind answering the following questions so I can be of more direct help.

1) Were you looking to use the bing maps silverlight control, or the bing maps ajax control?
2) Are you comfortable writing wcf services?
3) What fields from RequestAddress table are you looking to use to plot the correct location on the map? Do you have the latitude/longitude already or are you looking to use a postal address to get this (if so what country is the data in)
4) Is this for a standalone website or for embedding in something like a sharepoint portal?

      I am still new with WCF. I can definately give it a try.

3) What fields from RequestAddress table are you looking to use to plot the correct location on the map? Do you have the latitude/longitude already or are you looking to use a postal address to get this (if so what country is the data in)
      This table contains addresses  = "address, city, state, zip"
