    Multiple points limitation?

    Hi, I have data that i need to map which has 14 unique points. I read that you can only map 8 points (the first 8 ), I was wondering if there was a way around this so I am able to map all my data points? Possibly use custom pushpins aswell as the built in ones?

    Thanks

    Re: Multiple points limitation?

    What I am trying to put on the map are the postal codes of clients that contacted this company via one of the 14 different referral sources. This data will either be linked or imported (comes from the database so if theres an easier way of just linking a table rather than exporting to excel then importing into MapPoint please inform me)

    EX.

    Referral Source Postal Code
    Yellow Pages XxX xXx
    Yellow Pages XxX xXx
    Yellow Pages XxX xXx
    Other XxX xXx
    Other XxX xXx
    Internet etc...
    Internet
    etc...


    Thanks for any help!

    Re: Multiple points limitation?

    The easiest way would be to break them into groups and import as separate datasets... maybe there is a logical group so say one is "print" (yellow pages, newspaper, etc.) and the other is "electronic" (web site, e-mail newsletter, etc.). Or maybe make sense to have three or more groups.
