Posted 11 years ago
Hello all, I am a new user WM.could you please help me. I need to create a colored (blue) map of 1 country. and there are 5 regions. color of the map depends from the infomation(on the left side i need to put 4 check boxes(column B,C,D,E)), which will be selected from excel file. and this information will be change every month, so regions' color also needs to change automaticly . The color should change from the dark to light(dark blue takes max number, light blue takes light blue.Rest numbers will take colors between them. Do I need to get geographical coordinates of regions?
