I am usisng Mappoint 2010. What I want to do is show Hillsborough county, Fl with all its zipcodes as the background to my excel data which has addresses in the county. I want the outline of the zip codes to show with the number of the zipcode visible as background.
I'm getting an error message and being a beginner at this, don't know what I'm doing wrong. I am going into data, territories, create from your own set of data, import your source file. My source file is set up--country, state, county, zip code (only Hillsborough), territory (name of city which in many cases is the same). I actually don't need the city names but I tried running with the zip code column identified as territory and that didn't work. What am I doing wrong? My guess is that it is something simple.
What I want to accomplish once I create the map is to import excel data that has addresses and will be in two colors of push pins for the first version. The second versions would use the same data and separate out addresses that fall in Tampa and those that fall in the county but not city limits. The third version would have 10 different groups identified and each of those groups would have two shapes-one standard push pin and one a different symbol.
I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong and I'm on deadline with this project. Is there an automatic option to create a map of a county with all its zipcodes? Am I missing something here? My sense is that I've done some little thing wrong but can't figure it out.
I'd appreciate anyone's help.
