    Creating Custom Territories

    I need to draw about 10 "territories" on a map of Boise and then write a VBA script within Excel to determine if given address is inside of a territory or outside all territories.

    Seems like territories only work if they're defined by zip code or something like that. Is there a way to define custom territories and determine if a given address is within them?

    Another option I was thinking of is seeing about doing this using the Avoid Areas function, define a whole bunch of avoided areas and see if a given address is within these areas.

    Would anyone have any suggestions on how to do what I need done?

    Re: Creating Custom Territories

    Actually, reading through posts using other keywords I hadn't thought of, it appears that testing data against shapes is what I should be doing.

    Seems like I should be making multiple shapes and then testing each address with it. Would anyone know of a good place to find code for something similar to this that I could use as a starting point?
