    Mapping multiple points on the same postcoe

    Hey I'm having a little difficulty figuring out how it is possible for me to visually show the number of clients i have at one particular postcode.

    Some advice on how to show for instance that 2 clients are at postcode A and 5 are at postcode B would be appreciated.

    Hi JPP,

    You can use numbered pushpins or various colored pushpins to represent ranges.
    In fact, you might use a shaded area map instead of pushpins.

    Using Excel
    add two columns to Sheet1: PostCode, #Clients - Rename sheet to A-Clients.
    add two columns to Sheet2: PostCode, #Clients - Rename sheet to B-Clients

    Save file and close, open MapPoint.

    Use Data Menu, Import Data Wizard, choose file (type is XLS)
    Choose A-Clients and import as pushpins using a numbered symbol to represent #Clients for the dataset

    Repeat for B-Clients
