Maps aren't working with postal code

I have a column with Canadian postal codes: ex. L7E 2Y3

 

It's in ABC format. I change the Data Category to "Postal Code" and try dropping it into the "Location" value of the Bing map visual. Nothing happens. I trimmed and cleaned the text which didn't help.

 

So I tried taking out the space in the postal code: L7E2Y3 

That doesn't work.

 

Then I try adding the country to the postal code: CANADA L7E 2Y3 & CANADA L7E2Y3

That doesn't work.

 

I tried ON L7E 2Y3 & ON L7E2Y3

Didn't work either.

 

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong because if I search L7E 2Y3 or L7E2Y3 on the Bing website, it finds the location.

 

Thanks

Re: Maps aren't working with postal code

This worked after I changed the postal code from type "Postal Code" to "Address" which makes no sense but it worked.

I suggest to generate longitude and latitude in order to work and have high performance.

Hi , @PA7177 

What kind of visualization are you using? Everything looks well on my side.

Take a try to change the category of your data.
