How should the census tract field be formatted for Mappoint 2002 to understand it.
First I had it as a 4 digit number 0050 or 1641 etc.,, I then changed the format to 50.00 or 16.41. This appeared to be putting it in the format that Mappoint 2002 would display on some sample maps.
Census Tracts are not tied to a certain location. I might have a census tract 16.41 in Los Angeles, another 16.41 in Omaha and another 16.41 in New York. Thus all of my census tracts were not matched when I ran the mapping wizard. Do I need to reformat them again so that the input looks like 16.41,Los Angeles,CA....?
I currently have to bring up each unmatched record and match it up with the right census city state combination that is listed.
