I want to create a map with five sets of different colored Multiple Symbols, and be able to choose the data colums from my data source spreadsheets that show up in the Balloons. I can control the data types in the balloons when I import using a Pushpins map, but then all the pins are the same color. I can get the symbols for different franchise locations to show up in differnt colors using Multiple Symbols, but then the baloons autmatically show the address only and i have to enter the data i want into the fields manually. Can I have both?

A simple solution would be to set up your data as 5 different datasets (eg 5 worksheets in excel) and read these in separately.

That's worked for now, thanks.
