I have an excel spreadsheet with custome addresses and a sales person name. Can I link to the spreadsheet and have different color pushpins for each sales person?

:taz:I figured it out. I used a multipushpin map and it works fine.

Yes use the multi-symbol dataset type. This will let you use 8 diffrent symbols in the same pushpin set.

We suggest, use an additional PIN-Set, e.g. the classic PINS of MapPoint 2006.

You can import those by using the IC-SymbolManager.

You will find it in the IC-GeoAnalysis™ Suite:
The ultimative collection of programs, addIns and macros designed for working with MapPoint,
115 pages of - documentation (http://wh-en.mappoint-tools.info/GA/src/html/DatasetExport/Exportieren_nachExcel.htm) - with hundreds of tutorials and screenshots.
There is a 30 day free trial available for - download (http://www.dl-ww.mappoint-tools.info/GA/Setup_IC-GeoAnalysisSuite_1.0.19_plus.exe) (40MB) - .

:yes: After 30 days, IC-SymbolManager and IC-RouteManager will still work.

With kind regards

If you go the multi-symbol dataset type and find out you need more than 8 different symbols, the common work-around is to get your data into logical groups of less than 8 -- and then have multiple datasets.

Hello. I am brand new to MapPoint. I'm having trouble following this discussion. I went through the tutorial, but it does not address the question here. Could someone please provide me with a better explanation of multi-symbol dataset type (maybe using the tutorial data)?

is this a change made after the data is plotted? or as the data is being imported?

thank you

Hi Gregc!

Welcome to the forum.

I'd suggest to start a new thread with a little sample of your data and maybe a screenshot of what you are aiming for...
