    Only 8 unique data ranges mapped!! I have 2,000, now what?

    I need to map 2,000 unique street address locations in our county (USA-Sacramento, CA).

    However, I get a message stating "The data set has more than 8 unique data ranges. Only the first 8 unique data ranges will be mapped."

    How do I get around this major limitation?

    It sounds like you are using a Multiple Pushpin map which only allows for 8 ranges. Can you do what you need to with just regular Pushpins? Or can you use a continuous range instead of discrete ranges?

    Regular Push Pins Worked! Jake is the Man!

    I used regular push pins, and it worked! Great!

    Jake...you the man!

    I was simply using the Data Wizards' defaults, and not deviating from those.

    the limitation is importing 8 at time. If you have say 20 or 30, you could import 8 at a time. The drawback is that there are only 8 colors, so the colors will be reused.

    Yes, but you can have different symbols/shapes.
