Saving Maps In Microsoft Streets & Trips RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to save a map it saves it as a notebook file and it is useless.  When I save it says under Save As Type - Streets & Trips (* .est) but still saves it as a notebook doc.  Can't save any maps that I can go back to later.

  • Check the actual file extension of the resulting file: is it .est or .txt?   If it is .est, then it is a simple case of your Windows file associations being mixed up (someone might have tried to open an est file with Notepad and checked the "Always use this application" checkbox...)

  • Thank you. I changed the file association for est. and that fixed the problem and allowed me to save my maps.
