Hey there,

Firstly sorry if I have put this thread in the wrong location, this is my first post and wasn't quite sure where to put it.

I'm looking to calculate the bearing of a polyline with just two points, with reference to north. I found some other threads on this but didn't have any success.

I think it maybe because I was using VBA coding which is apparently not compatible with ArcGIS 10 which requires python or dot net.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. You might need to spell it out for me though as my knowledge of GIS is pretty limited to what I've been able to teach myself over the last couple of months ion my honours.
