    Drawing ZIP level maps- Troubles

    Hi,
    I am trying to show on the map of US, data by ZIP Code. My each ZIP Code belongs to a bucket of A/B/C or D. I want to display all of my 40,000+ ZIP codes in 4 different colors for A B C D- so the end result would be a Us map in four different colours here and there. The problem? I did succeed, but partially. My map shows ZIP codes written (the digits) all over the map in light gray color, whereas I don't want to see any ZIPs on my map- just the color codes. Also, when I zoom out to a specific level so that my map can be printed on one page, the color coding on the map dissapears! it reappears if I zoom in, but then it's too big to be printed on one page.

    Could someone please help me with these two issues? I just started using MapPoint, but ran into these issues.

    Thanks,
    Nishant

    Re: Drawing ZIP level maps- Troubles

    You can't remove the writing, although you can reduce the font size (look on the menus). Reducing the font size will make teh writing less obvious, and the smallest writing will disappear.

    The US is a big place and zipcodes tend to be very small (unless you're in somewhere like West Texas), therefore the zipcodes will not normally be visible on a pan-US map.
    After saying this, speak to Mattys Consulting at Mattys Consulting - Custom Programming
    They can print larger-than normal maps whilst maintaining the detail.

    Thanks. I think MapPoint has very little capabilities, though it comes very cheap- but nowhere close to ArcView.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
