You need to use reverse geocoding. One of the most popular methods is here:

Thanks for your indications, your comment is interesting, but it doesn't apply to Microsoft MapPoint 2009 Europe version. The one we have.

flubbster,

I find the way to find an address: you only need to make a left-click on the location where you want the street address.

It waste difficult to me to find this solution, because you can't do it on an imported point. You must click somewhere else near the concerned point.

Your second link inspired me the solution.

Thanks you very much!
