    United States and States/Other Data confusion

    Hi,

    I try to show an unsized pie with the following imported data:

    Code:
    Longitude    Latitude    SWITZERLAND    FRANCE    UNITED STATES    NETHERLANDS
    -20    40    1000    2000    3000    8000
    This is really what I want, to show only one pie at a specific location which is filled with data of some countries.

    But DisplayMapData thinks the UNITED STATES column is a column about STATES and so I get a False Parameter when I execute it.

    Is there a way to force MapPoint to treat a specific column as "other data"?

    Thanks in advance.

    Amenti,

    I've tried your example as tab and comma delimited and
    in both cases I was able to use the drop-down at the top
    of the column to change from 'state' to 'other data.'

    Thanks for the comment.

    Sorry, I haven't been specific enough. When I start Mappoint and do this import in the Gui I can change the Datatype.

    But I try to do this by code so the user can't change the datatype and I have to do it programmatically.

    This makes sense.

    Can you post the code you have currently? I will take a look.

    Thanks a lot but now I found it.

    I had to specify the DataTypes in the ArrayOfFields when Importing. So I could set all but my Latitude Longitude Columns to geoFieldData. Now it works like charm.
