How to transfer pushpins from one pushpin set to the other

Christmas is around the around the corner and Santa Claus has planned his special deliveries using AutoRoute. But how is Santa going to keep track of pending deliveries and the ones he has completed. Using Microsoft AutoRoute that will be a very easy thing to do.

This is the map that Santa has created. It has 2 pushpin sets: Pending Delivery and Delivered. All pushpins in the map are now associated with Pending Delivery pushpin set.

    I am having great difficulty doing this as when I come to select a destination set I can not do anything except select one from a small set. I can not type a name in or see the one I want to go to. Help please, will come back to see if any comments.
