Are you exporting to a csv file????   You should be exporting to the Delorme
Topo USA, SA Plus option.  Using this export for the off line page is what
did not work.  (It replaced spaces with %20) but he has this figured out and
gave me a newer version that works right.

That is why I really like it.  It was a real pain to set it up to do this,
but the new version of GSAK makes it pretty easy and fast.

Here is my first attempt at a macro:

EXPORT Type=DEL Settings=Hidden
EXPORT Type=DEL Settings=Hidden-Flag
EXPORT Type=DEL Settings=Hidden-Off

Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

You need to create 3 files to import into Street Atlas.  (One that has a
link for the online cache page, one that has a link for the off line cache
page, and one for just a flag).  I have it set up for the settings each way
and this macro was an attempt to run all three exports.  I get an error
message of an access violation.
