I have tried the different ways of launching IE from MS Access to allow the user to view a Google map and that works fine. Is there any way to retrieve in MS Access the lat/long coordinates that the user points to, assuming he/she may change the location after viewing the map? I have a Google Map API key, but don't know how I could get the coordinates. If this is not possible, could I pass and address to an API from MS Access and have the API return either an error code or the coordinates?
1: right on a location on the map select one of the options such as "Whats here?"
then in the bottom left corner of the page the coordinates will appear.
2: the other way i found is to get a link for the current location click on "link" next to print and send a box will appear with the link.
hope this helps
