Map Chart Area "Only show regions with data" issue

Copper Contributor

Hey team,


I have an issue whereby selecting "Only show regions with data" displays the correct data on a map, but eliminates country borders. See attached pictures.

Any thoughts why this might occur, and how to ensure country borders are shown?


Many thanks,

@morgangrjI wish I could help you with an answer, but I'm hunting for the same thing too. Literally the exact same problem. And of course no ones answered your question because this the MS forums.


I knew before I even clicked on it that there would either be no answer, or the answer would be a copy paste telling you to try rebooting, then when that didn't work running system file checker, then finally reinstall windows.


Why is their support so terrible?


So were you ever able to figure out how to make the regions show?

@Outrider02 See attached file with a small example. It shows only 'Regions with data'. Each region (in this case countries) has its own colour. So, no issues with seeing country boarders.

If this is not what you were looking for, please clarify.
