    Was this a waste?

    All I want to do is draw a zip/county map and I can't seem to get this Street and Trips on steroids to do it. I have seen similar posts go unanswered so it looks like I blew $299.00 .

    I can map a bunch of useless and trivial demographic data from sets you get free from the US Census site but I can't seem to make a simple map.

    I don't suppose anyone would care to help?

    Visualize Zip Codes

    This could rate in the stupidest workarounds, but it might help you.

    Go to the Data Mapping Wizard,
    choose Shaded Area,
    Next,
    select Add Demographics to the Map,
    select US Demographic Data,
    Next,
    select Area in Square Miles, <none>, Zip Code,
    Next,
    Finish

    You get a map shaded by Zip Code. I don't know if it will help, but it might be a start. All the best with this sad program.

    And, if you Google for it, there is software out there that offers the ability to make those boundaries you want from census data.

    Zip Code boundaries as Territories

    AH HAH!!!
    I've found the way to make zip codes boundaries as territories (assuming that is what you want).

    Start the Create Teritories Wizard,
    select Create Manually,
    Next,
    select US, Zip Code,
    Next,
    read the explanation of Individually,
    Finish.

    You then create each territory (I named each one a zip code number I wanted to map). Then select each territory and for each one, select the zip code number (as in the Individual description). And click Add to Territory. The Zip Code boundary is now your territory.
