    Number of Ranges Increase?

    Is there any way to increase the number of ranges when mapping data using the wizard? Currently, I can only map using 8 ranges but need more to get all data onto the map.

    There's no way to increase the number of ranges in the Wizard, but the work-around is to code a custom importer that by-passes the Wizard.

    Re: Number of Ranges Increase?

    Hi, This my first post. I am concerned that mappoint only allows a maximum of 8 data ranges! This seems like an unreasonable limitation by microsoft. So, can I work around this? I need to use about 14 data ranges, (14 crews working in parks around the city).

    Welcome to the board and I hope you find your participation useful!

    My post earlier in 2006 (I sort of remember it!) was probably not that incredibly helpful.

    For 14 items e.g. different MapPoint Pushpin Symbols, you could just break up your data into two groups of 7 or however logical it would be to group them.

    In some cases working with customers, it could be three or more groups of less than eight -- or it might make more sense to to 14 different layers (instead of using the Multiple Symbol map at all).

    (Then of course, it might help to have a macro to automate this so there are not so many clicks!)

    If you describe your needs more or post an example or sample of your data, I could suggest which approach might be best for you.
