    Exclamation Some zips from data not shading (not pin point zip codes)

    I have a column labeled zip codes with about 100 zips and then the next column is number of sales with a number for each zip code. I imported this data into the data mapping wizard choosing a shaded area map and chose to display data by zip code. I then chose discrete equal ranges and increased it to 5 ranges- then put my ranges in (0-1, 2-8, 9-44, 45-68, 69-88). It didn't say that it had any issues matching zip codes and mapped most of it all fine. But there a few zip codes that I can see listed on the map that aren't shaded, I looked in my data and they are zips that are in my data list with 1 or 2 sales. So I Googled those zips to make sure they weren't point zip codes and it said that they are supposed to be a defined area, not just a pin point. I looked at the data menu to make sure that those zip codes weren't skipped and it appeared that all records were matched from my list. I have no idea what the problem could be and can't find the answer anywhere online. Every time I have called support they just tell me to restart the program. Can someone help me?

    Thanks so much!

    hmiller87,

    Welcome to the forums, I hope we can help!

    That's classic about them telling you to restart the program, as if that's going to do anything. Did they tell you to come to MapForums.com and post? I have heard MapPoint's support often mentions MapForums.com, and even happened with myself one time, lol.

    Can you post some sample data that illustrates the issue? Zip and attach to your reply.

    My first thought is that MapPoint's built-in zip code areas are pretty old and definitely not complete. It is census 2000 ztca's. However, before jumping to conclude that's the issue, I should really investigate the specific zip codes...

    Let's see what we can figure out!

    Eric
