    multi-layer data mapping

    Would like to be able to map multiple layers of data. For example, the client now wants to show all his dealers on one map, but have broken down by the level of sales. I can do that, but he wants to be able to hide or unhide sets at will. Also to be able to show the dealers on the map and be able to show how many of each product they purchase.

    Layers

    You're having the same issue as some users doing basically the same thing with territories. There's no good answer at this time, maybe the 2004 version has a solution?

    I am using 2004 v, and I am not able to use these layers. I would be great if a can hide and unhide customers orders for different days of the weeks in an essy way.

    In Paint, create a bitmap that is one pixel by one pixel. Save it. Open your map, and from the legend, right click and choose Format Legend.

    Then from the symbol pull down, click the Import Custom Symbol button at the top of the pull down menu. Navigate and select your new bitmap.

    After it imports, it will be directly above the black pushpin. Choose this and your data will disappear.

    Layers

    Thank you for the tip. It is a nice trick, it visually works!; however I would like to get more power from MP: Like counting points in a layer between some drawn boundaries and exporting them all at once to MSExcel; get routes by layers; and work with a layer like an independent set of data.
    Any tip for that?

    Thank you very much
