Excel map chart - regions not recognized

Copper Contributor

Hi there, 


I am struggeling to build a map chart of Finland. Although the regions are correctly recognized as geography data, they are not plotted correctly in the map, as several regions are missing.


Thanks for your help!

It works in my case


Please note the tool is sensitive to column names, do you use plain text, structured table and/or rich data types. As well as to exact region names.

That is really great - thank you so much, Sergei!
Do you happen to have already a map set up for Switzerland, by any chance. Struggling to make the map recognize the region Neuenburg/Neuchâtel and not to mistake it for the city. It's the only region I have this problem with. Thanks so much! :)

@JessHi , you are welcome

At least Neuchâtel is here


Oh, fantastic - thank you very much for your help. Much appreciated!

@JessHi , glad to help
