I am a new ArcGIS user with minimal experience. I have managed to geocode two separate data sets and I want to calculate travel time between the addresses in layer A (individuals) and their chosen store in layer B. Individual store choice is identified in the A layer by an identification number that is also identified in the B layer. How can I go about doing this? I have gone through a number of Network Analysis tutorials and videos, but I am still at a loss of how to start. Do I have to build my own files? How do I do this?

I have also seen and read the posts about creating a Routename. Can anyone help with exactly how to do this?

I intuitively sense that this should be very straight forward, but practically sense that this is harder than expected.

Thank you for your time.
