I am plotting counties of the UK - specifically the South West of England. This includes Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Excel maps WILL NOT plot Devon, no matter what I call it. I have tried:
Devon, United Kingdom
Devon, GB, United Kingdom
On Bing maps, Devon comes up absolutely fine. What is the problem please?

I'm trying to do the same thing, could you give me the list of counties you're using (inc. Wales, Scotland and NI?) there is something odd with the way it recognises counties as I've got Devon in my list and it's working fine. I'm having a problem with what on earth (no pun intended) the other options for Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk are!!

It very depends not only on counties names, but also on how you name your column. If, for example, England, NI, etc you call Countries you have one picture. If States - another.
In attached map counties you mentioned are shown. However, not sure all counties are recognized.

Hope you don't mind. I've attached an update to your UK Maps file correcting the data for Scotland. There are currently 32 council areas (counties) in Scotland which I have listed. There are still some errors which I think are bugs in the map chart application (see Below).
Errors for Scotland
Renfrewshire, West Dunbartonshire and Midlothian are correct counties but do not show on the map.
Using the names Hebrides and Ayrshire show the areas on the map but these areas are incorrectly named.
Hebrides should be Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Gaelic for Western Isles)
Ayrshire should be South Ayrshire.
Hope this helps others in the community.

@Bill_Crawford and@Sergei Baklan thanks a lot that works great for the counties. Unfortunately only part of the level 1 regions (12 in total) are recognised. Have asked Bing to add them as provinces or states in the UK. the 12 are:

Thanks for sharing your spreadsheet. I encountered this problem and found what appears to be a fix (of sorts) for those Scottish regions that don't show up (Renfrewshire, West Dunbartonshire and Midlothian) : if you remove "Scotland" from the "State" column, they pull through. Don't ask me why (I stumbled upon it completely by accident!). I don't know if this works with the ones in England as I've not tried it. Hope that helps some people.
