    I am trying to find a way to get the square milage of my territories. I created the territories by free-forming them on the map. I can right-click and do a show size, but I am not sure if the number it gives is the square milage or not. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks,

    "free form territories": Do you mean you are drawing your own polygon shapes?
    If so, when you right click to get a size you get the length of the line.
    Ie. the perimeter of your area.

    I don't know a way to get the area of a shape without a little bit of programming.
    For large shapes, you then have to take into account the curved Earth which makes things a bit more complicated.
