I want to build a tool that creates a cell sector from data like that below. The sector diagram should be like the second picture. The first picture shows a Mapinfo tab file with the required fields Antenna beam, Azimuth, Band, (the radius), Latitude, and Longitude. How could I achieve this? I had a look at a link in mapinfo-L but the solution was not conclusive!

Have a look at the MapBasic code in the zip file here. It doesn't create sectors for multiple cells, but could easily be adapted to do so.
