    Using MapPoint at the county level

    I apologize in advance if this question is too rudimentary, but thank you to anyone who can help. Our agency serves low-income clients in Cook County, Illinois. I want to prepare a shaded area map of our client population broken out by zip code. I was able to import data from our SQL server into MapPoint. Every client has a unique identifier, a case number. There are about 39,000 records and some 700 ones with invalid or no zip code. Can I prepare what I need with this software? What about breakdowns by race or income level? We have those fields in the database, too.

    (P.S. I worked through the tutorial before I sent this! However I did not buy MapPoint for Dummies which seems to have been poorly received. Any other recommendations for learning would be appreciated. Thanks)

    Yes you can.. you will need to pre-process the data some so that there is a single record per zip code. I would find it easiest to import all the data to Access and manipulate it. If you have the ability to create views and tables on SQL server it could also be done there.

    You may want to assign zip codes to the 700 where it is missing.
