Excel-tab files for 2 worksheets?

    Apols if this has come up before.

    I have an excel workbook with multiple worksheets. I have 2 different analyses, both of which I want to map, which are on different worksheets. They are derived from the same dataset, but different types of data, so I don't want them on the same sheet, and I don't really want to store them in different workbooks.

    How do i get mapinfo to connect to both worksheets? It seems to automatically assume I always want the same one.

    You can sort of do it with an ODBC connection. I have managed to 'open' both worksheets at the same time.

    Although these were only mappable via a join.

    I couldn't figure out how to create a mapcatalogue to auto create points with.  And also, despite having co-ords in the data, it wouldn't let me create points either.

    Let me know if you want me to talk you through it

    Thanks Nick!
    I would want to create points though, so I guess I'll stick to cloning the book :-)
