I was wondering if anyone knows how to position the data labels when creating territories on the map so that they don't overlap and when you position the cursor over the bar graph
Is it possible to import a table file with polygon information and use it in Mappoint to create your own territory from your own set of data? Thank you.No, not as far as I am aware of - you can create custom territories, but they have to be made of the smallest building blocks (e.g. census tracts), not arbitrary boundaries. Gilles [MVP].

I'm having a problem upgrading an application written in MapPoint 2002 to 2004 version. This application builds territories by census tract, and unlike 2002, MapPoint 2004 doesn't seem to match census tracts properly when the rightmost digit course. Gilles [MVP]. (Please reply to the group, not via email)Correct - it's definitely the import territories routine. Seems to be centered not just on tracts with a ".X0" ending, but those that

I would like to know whether MapPoint 2004 will allow me to create territories by importing 1k or 10k OS Grid references from an Excel spreadsheet. I've tried it in 2002 trial but it doesn't give the option of OS Grid.Matt, I don't think this was changed in 2004. Gilles [MVP]. (Please reply to the group, not via email)
'll almost always want to choose the smaller geoentity to define your territories by. Once you have created a manual set of territories, you can export them by closing the territory manager, opening the legend pane, right-clicking the territory set and 48845 United States 488 48811 United States 488 48835 United States 488 There is no API method for exporting manually-created territories, nor does mappoint create a valid MapPoint.Recordset when querying a manually-created territory dataset. For this reason, you& ;#39;ll want to create your territory dataset in a file and import or link the territories. When imported or linked, the recordset and dataset objects are properly created.

I am a map point Newbie, I need to create free form territories on my map, I will then import my companies customer's sales data into these free form terrritories. Will I then be able to export the information from these free form terrritories to different spreadsheets? The territories use roads, county lines, city boundries as their borders. Any thoughts or comments areI am also a "newbie" and I too would like to define territories smaller than zip codes. I have been able to simply draw shapes to define them, but I would prefer if they were real territories.
Hi, I know using the wizard it's not possible to map territories by the full postal code. I was wondering if there was a way to do it without the wizard? I' before going and teaching myself VB. I only deal with one city and so I really need to map the territories in a smaller scale. I'm using MapPoint 2006 if that helps. Any advice appreciated EmmaBHi Emma What do you mean by "full postcode", and which country are you mapping in?Hi Paul thanks for responding. I&
Is there a way to hide the Territories labels on a map? I setup custom Territories by importing an excel spreadsheet with “Sales Rep" and "State" fields. The States are now shaded and display the sales rep names on the map. I do not want to show the sales rep names on the map.Hi Scott AFAIK, this is not possible using the mappoint interface. You could achieve something like this by changing from territories to shapes though: Check out the Spatial Data Import COM AddIn. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=ada44a9e-3ee0-4fd7-a923-c900c6c9d5b7&displaylang=en You can get the state-level boundary SHP files from the US Census Bureau via their website: http://www.census.gov/geo/cob/bdy/st/st00shp/st99_d00_shp.zip Paul
We have defined a set of territories by postcode district. Then exported to an excel spreadsheet. When importing the territories into a fresh map, they are scrambled all over the place. Any ideas why mappoint can't handle importing it's own exports?Try importing in lowercase. MapPoint seems to have a bug reading
upcase text data.Thanks - fixed immediately. Sack the MapPoint developers!
;m trying to make sales territories by county and have found out that it won't let me have the same county for more than one salesperson. Is there any way to do this, other than by going down to a zip code level. The counties are really important and we have counties that are shared by several salespeople?Kevin, I don't think the territories concept allows for intersections of areas - AFAIK a county either belongs to one territory
