Hi all,

Is there a little proggy out there which will collate all your POI .ov2 into one single file at a click of a button??

I can do this by opening one by one and adding them to a main file, but its a right pain !

Any ideas?

Thanks

MPW

POIEdit will allow you to do append POI files together (just Google POIEdit!).

Also if you select "Combine subcategories into category file " when you download, you can merge up to 20 downloaded sub-categories into a single file.

On the other hand, you do realise that when you merge files together like this, you only get one icon which applies to all POIs? This might be what you want to do, but I thought I had better point it out, just in case!

Thanks Daggers, I realise it will only be one poi icon, thats all i need for this particular requirement.

Its more for personal pois rather then ones from this site.

Will give POIEdit a try (again?)

Thanks

Thanks again Daggers,

POIedit did seem to work!

I did have to edit some of the .ov2 files, and give them an `ending remark` like
; 1 record written, 0 deleted bytes ignored, 344043 bytes not processed or i would get an error message!

Cheers

MPW

Hmm... never seen that, and I use POI edit at least once or twice a week.
Where were these POI files from? I'm usually only dealing with the ones from this site.

I've seen a similar "comment" footer to the text file created by dumpov2 which is ignored when making the ov2 file with makeov2. These are both DOS programs to decrypt and encrypt ov2 files. As ov2 files are encrypted, there would not be any plain text comments like this in them.

I don't have it on this PC, but POIEdit is a Windows program. IIRC you use File-Amend or something similar to merge the POI data from separate ov2 files before saving the result.

"File - Append" Very Happy
(Then "Save as...")
