    Shapefile Import Utility

    I have shapefile data for UK Census Areas and want to import them into Mappoint.

    I have downloaded the .exe utility from the Microsoft website and have extracted the files into a desktop folder but I have no idea what to do next!

    The support/instructions for this have been withdrawn from the MS website.

    I am sure this is fairly straightforward - can anyone help?

    This seems such an important feature, why is it so difficult to find out what to do??

    Thanks in advance

    Where's the answer?

    Phil asks a great question, as do I: why doesn't Mappoint let you define your own regions. The marketing cut sheet said you can define your own territories, but that feature limits you to combining enormous census tract building blocks. I want to map values to much smaller regions. Not to mention the bizzarre process of blind selecting those building blocks as you attempt to add them to your custom defined territory.
