I have been working with GIS and MapInfo Professional since 1996 when I joined COWI, the Danish distributor of the MapInfo products.

I have worked as end user digitizing paper plans into MapInfo Pro. I have worked as a developer building commercial products as well as customer specfic applications using MapBasic and .NET.

I have also done a lot of training, mostly in the advanced part of MapInfo Pro, such as SQL, Connecting to and using databases and MapBasic.

Currently I work as a Senior Systems Engineer with Pitney Bowes Software who develops MapInfo Professional and the other products in the MapInfo portfolio.

comment Where does MapInfo store its Coordinate Systems?
That's the User Guide for MapInfo Pro 12.5. Do note that we add new datums etc. in most new versions of MapInfo Pro. I would therefor recommend that you have a look at the User Guide for the version of MapInfo Pro that you currently are using. They can be found here (at least the latest versions): pbinsight.com/support/product-documentation/details/…

comment Getting the max value from where polygons intersect in MapInfo
Do you want to do this via a query and see the result in a query or do you want to update your buildings with the max depth value from the triangles?

comment How to setup an ODBC Connection with Access database in Mapbasic
No, you can reuse the connection for as many tables as you want - well, there is a limit somewhere but you can open a lot of tables via one connection

Do you have a ODBC Data Source or are you trying to avoid creating a Data Source?

comment Dynamic connection between Mapinfo and a database
You need the mapcatalog to store spatial data in the database from MapInfo Pro and for MapInfo Pro to be able to read the spatial data from the database. If you don't have the mapcatalog and your table is spatial/mappable in MapInfo Pro chances are that you aren't reading/writing the spatial data to the database but just storing it in a map file connected to your attribut file (dat)

comment Dynamic connection between Mapinfo and a database
Can you talk a bit about how you created the tab file? I expect you created the table in the database, created the mapinfo_mapcatalog and then opened this table into MapInfo Pro via Open (DBMS) Table... Correct?

You can use Format$(MIDX, "#.########") to get more decimals on you floating values - or use a Decimal column for your coordinates
