Bug in MapPoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have linked 18 Multiple Symbol Map Data sets From Excel to MapPoint 2013.  I went through each data set to turn on all the fields available--so they show in the information balloons--in Data Set Properties of each link, by clicking on the Baloons Tab, and checking off the four fields i want to show in the information baloon for each data point.  

    I can only update two to five data set properties with check marks in the baloon tab fields, before MapPoint hangs indefinately?

    Please fix MS MapPoint 2013.

  • Have you tried setting the visibility after importing each dataset?MapPoint is being withdrawn from sale at the end of the year so I very much doubt Microsoft will offer a fix for the above.

  • I LINKED each dataset to an individual Excel table. After I created all 18 LINKS I set the visibility of the fields in the data point balloons with the dataset properties dialog, balloon tab. that's when I ran into the infinite hang problem. I haven't tried it any other way.  MapPoint 2013 hangs after setting between 2 to 5 different dataset balloon property's tabs.
