    Exclamation mapping different colour pushpins

    Hi,

    I had a problem a long time ago that Eric really helped me out with - thanks again Eric!

    This time, I've got MP 2006 Europe, and I'm trying to import a load of addresses into MP. I've managed to import just a list of postcodes (some of which incidentally it doesn't recognise, I'm guessing their database is out of date), but what I'm really wanting to do is give the pushpins a different colour depending upon the vlaue of that customer. We are looking at how our customers cluster, and sure its great if we've got a load of customers over one side of town, but if the value of those is small, maybe we want to look at the other side where the cluster could be smaller, but the value per customer larger. Can I assign a column from the import to a specific colour pin? I can't figure it after a frustrating session trying to do it!

    Thanks in advance,

    Antony

    I donít think you can do this is any easy way with MP2006. You either need to read in your data as separate data sets, eg from separate excel sheets or set up some simple code (eg in excel vba) to assign records to different pushpin datasets as you read them in.
