Please help me create a mapping macro?

Is to possible to map several addresses from an excel spreadsheet on Google earth, Google maps, etc. using a macro?

I have a spreadsheet of 1,629 addresses. They are in an excel file. I am interested in plotting them all on a map to visualize patterns of distribution within a geographic area. I have Google earth. I would like to use a macro and save myself some life, but I'm not sure whether this is possible.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!

I made a similar request here. Maybe that will help.

from Top 10 Things You Didn't Know Google Maps Could Do, Lifehacker also recommends BatchGeo for mapping multiple addresses (#1 on their list) - here's a video from the article.
