Hi again Frank,
I'll move my questions back to the forum setting so others can benefit from your troubleshooting support!
I inherited a quasi-completed mapping project which consists of a map of Nunavut (a province in Canada). This province is subdivided into three regions, and within each region are multiple communities. I have opened up the shapefile map.dbf, and there is no boundary or category established for the province (Nunavut) - only the three regions and respective communities. There are some statistics I need to display that only exist for the province as a whole (again, which encompasses all the regions). I've looked for a different shape file, but without success...
What are my options? I've tried adding a map point to represent the province as one alternative, but although this added point (Nunavut), shows up in the dropdown menu of region options, there is no added map point on the map (and I have made sure there is data in this new category). When I click on the "Nunavut" category in the hierarchy in the dropdown menu, I'd like all three regions to pop up simultaneously, but I'm assuming I can't alter the shapefile at the .dbf level (to add in a new category)?
