Re: Zip codes from database do not map

Hey all,

 

I was able to get the zipcode list to work in my visualization by using the advance editor and changing the zipcode data type to "text".  Hope this helps.

I was also able to get this to work by changing FROM Postal Code TO Uncategorized...completely backwards but worked.

Re: Zip codes from database do not map

The ones that don't map are they 5 digit or the 9 digit.  I found on my ESRI map the 9 digit codes are not mapping.  That is what brought me here looking for an answer.  This might help narrow the scope of your problem.

Re: Zip codes from database do not map

Did some testing with other visuals and found that 9 digit zip codes wouldn't work.  Went into my data made all zip code entries 5 digits.  Now all entries map and the totals based zip code are correct.  Not sure when this became a problem for me, but I am on the Jan. version.  I hope this helps someone...
