Hello,

I need to calculate the distance/time travelled between corresponding origin/destination points (the survey number would be the common link between the 2 datasets).  These surveys were done along the interstate, so I would also need to calculate the time just travelled on the interstate for those routes.  We are using Navteq street data for our network.
I have tried the O/D matrix but I have been unsuccessful in creating a route for each set of survey points.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you want distances betwee pairs of points and not a complete OD cost matrix, then use the Route solver and load your start and end locations with the common survey number mapped to the ROUTENAME field (see the network location tab on the route layer pproperties). Then Solve. You will get one path per pair of stops. More on routename here:
