Hi I tried again, reading a new version of the xlsx file as the data file (not a native MapInfo table). I got this error: I tried the heatmap option instead of standard thematics, and get this So I tried importing the xlsx table as a native MapInfo table, and this time I CAN create a heatmap, ...

Thanks Peter. I tried opening as a native MapInfo table rather than an Excel-linked table, and it worked, although behaved very strangely, and opened the thematic map in a new window and made a copy of the original point file in the original window. It was then quite difficult to get the thematic ...

Hi Trying to create a grid thematic map (MapInfo basic version only, so a normal thematic, of type "grid"), and we get this error: "Error creating grid file during interpolation process" The MapInfo Tab file reads from an underlying excel file, but I don't think that should matter for standard ...

Many thanks Peter, that seems to have worked. It gave me a different error when I first did what you suggested, but then after closing MapInfo, and re-opening the database link, it worked fine. Much appreciated. ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd (VAR) Petersfield ...

Hi I'm trying to set up an ODBC connection, to a .mdb database which has the required unique identifier field and indexed fields in it as far as I can tell.  I set it up using "Machine Data Source" and "System Data Source" which is what I've done before, but it gives me this error: This happens ...

Hi I am sure this should be really easy, and I may even have done it before, but I can't work out how to do it now. I would like to show labels, but only for objects above a certain value. eg only display the population of a country where it's more than 5 million.  I know I can query the table, ...

Hi all, I have a file which I believe is an ENVI file, in .hdf format with associated hdf.met file. I can't see a way to open it in MapInfo, and as a novice with FME it's failing any sort of transformation to MapInfo format in that too. I can save it to a GEOtiff in FME but it seems to lose its projection ...

Discovered the problem - I was trying to do thematics on a sub-set of data. Turns out you can't use "join" thematics when it's only a subset of the original file, despite it being an SQL rather than a spatial subset. D'Oh! ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd ...

Hi,  I'm using v2019.3, and I am sure there used to be an option to create a thematic map using the "join" feature. I have 2 tables which share the same field, although the fields do not have the same name they have the same info.  All I see on the list of options under "field" are the normal ...

Hi, the useful MapInfo YouTube channel has disappeared, and none of the tutorial links on the old PB site are working, so does anyone have links to MapInfo tutorial videos please? Specifically 64-bit "starter" guides for new users. Thanks in advance Caroline ------------------------------ Caroline ...

Good point Eric - thanks for that, yes of course, it doesn't matter how it's displayed, does it? That's set up by the computer settings not MapInfo :) ------------------------------ Caroline Hilton Pelican GeoGraphics Ltd (VAR) Petersfield ------------------------------

Hmm... not having much luck. I tried the "year" version in the SQL dialogue box, but it says "found [YearCreated] when search for [from]. I tried both the year and the 2 month-year versions in the MapBasic box and it says Unrecognized command: Into I'm using a very basic dataset for this, not the ...

Hi all Can any of you SQL experts (@PeterHM...?) advise me on how to group a table by year, or by month/year, using a date field formatted mm/dd/yyyy please? It looks as though in true sql you would use DATEPART but I don't know if MapInfo recognises that command. At least I can't get it to in ...

I had to log into the e-store to put the order through, then I got the page that showed the completed order with the green download buttons. Nothing else.
