Thanks, Martin. I am a bit confused with one portion of your reply. Once a layout is created, the map is completely severed from the original map. Or so it seems. Part of my consternation is that I have to train 100+ users in this new environment so any confusion on my part will be greatly multiplied. ...

I've done this, but unfortunately, when there are values with leading zeros either Excel or MapInfo replaces the entire value with a zero. So data is lost and cannot be recovered. It seems to me like in the past in this circumstance that MapInfo would convert the field to Float and keep all of the ...

Is there a way to force MapInfo to register an Excel file with all fields as Char using the Register Table command? MapInfo is 'helpfully' assigning the Float data type to a column that contains data that is all numbers but some values have leading zeros. This is an ID field and needs to be imported ...

If they arent Id like to set them. In looking at the MB reference documentation I dont see a way to do that. Has anyone found ...
