Hi All,

I am trying to run a thematic on a table of population data in Manifold. I want to be able to assign my own population graduations and also a unique symbol according to these graduations. I have read the help files and it seems I am on the right track however I suspect the format of the column that holds the population data is not correct. Can anyone recommend what this should be, i.e. Interger, text, floating point etc.

I would dearly love to send the shapefile through to someone for them to have a quick look at it. If you think you can help out please let me know. This is driving me crazy!

Since you'll be doing math on that column, either integer of floating point, to be on the safe side. Some applications support 'type juggling', allowing you to do mathematical operations on text strings as long as they have a numerical component, but I'm not sure Manifold is one of them.

Feel free to email me your shapefile (address is below) and I'll have a quick look.
