I am trying to create a map using regions in the world (Africa, Asia, North America, Europe, etc.) using the map insert feature in excel. When I try i I get an error message. If I change them to countries it works, but I do not want to data by country. How can I make regions work? Is there specific wording that I need?

No specific words, it doesn't work with continents.
