print out the lsc.file and you will realize why. Anyway there is a good english documents that explains very well how and where modify files. What Kiwi is trying to tell you is that it is not just a copy and paste procedure, but you have to replace the reference in all the files. I did by myself form the scratch and it works perfectly and I did my own display menu.

it very easy indeed, but when you open the .asc file it is not yet divided in column and you have to do it; then you have to convert numbers or the format does not work. My intent is to create a macro that:
- takes the full string from the single row;
- divides string into column (at least lat, long and names)
- converts lat and long in the appropriate format (divide by 1000000 and put 6 decimals)
- moves the column in the appropriate column of POI maker

Actually it is a simple .asc file generated by POIedit - nothing more nothing less - then I just open the file with excel but I got only single rows, this is way.
BTW I modified your excel wsheet to have the .idx and .url heading as required (I know it is not a critical item) but it was to understand a little bit more about VBA.
Now I have added other sheets in the POI maker from where I can pick up the data already converted in columns.
My goal is now to "push a button" to convert one row data into three columns. I'm studying VBA...

But in POI Maker you have the full flexibility to use any names you want.

Note that the names in the 2010 HIGH map vary according to what URL category you are looking at - some categories have more names than others.

When making your own category, you decide what data you want in the URL file, and then set the names to what you want.

Remember, the names in the URL file drive what information can be displayed on the Search Results screen.
If you want lots of detail, and click-able phone numbers, add them to your URL file!
If you want nothing more than NAME, then delete the other names.

It's that simple!

The length of the data is calculated automatically by Excel (as long as you leave the formulas intact).

The names that you use are governed by the HTM Search Result file that you use.

I do not know what category POIs you are adding (Flower Shops?) and how much detail you want to show (just Name? Or Name, Photos, Address, and Owners's Name?).

What you enter in the URL file depends purely on what YOU want to do with the data !!
