Re: Why can't I map US counties or other standard shapes?

I'm unable to map my data by US county, I've made sure that the county names in my data set match those in the supplied .shp file - US County name as laid out in the video but I still get no Shape file message when I drop the data into graph builder. I've also made sure the Column properties for my county column match those of my state column. I can map the data by state without issue but I want to drill down further. I'm clueless how to fix this.

Re: Why can't I map US counties or other standard shapes?

It's going to be hard to know why it's not working without seeing your county names. I've moved your comment from Why can't I map US counties or other standard shapes? to this thread so you can post a data table with just your county name column so we can try it out to see what might be going wrong.
