When using the Spatial Data Import utility (for MapInfo boundries) to import shapes - we noticed that shapes that contain holes (like donuts) import as solid shapes with no holes. Thought all should be aware .....

Makes sense - I don't think the MapPoint API supports 'holes' in polygons.

One solution (if for display only), would be to split the polygon into two polygons. The 'hole' is then incorporated in the split, as it were.
