To provide a custom map, go to the Common section of the Options menu and change the Default Map value to Custom.
Finally, provide shape data using one of the following ways.
Specify a path to the .shp file using the Custom Map URL option. Attributes from the corresponding .dbf file located in the same directory will automatically be included in the map.
Load the existing shapefile using the ellipsis button next to the Custom Map File option. In the invoked dialog, locate the required .shp file. Use the Custom Attribute File option to locate the .dbf file containing attributes for each shape.
After you select the default or custom map, you can display supplementary information (such as the name of a country, state, etc.). To do this, go to the Options menu and open the Attribute Name dropdown list.
This list displays available attributes for the current map. Each set of attribute values is related to a specific map shape.
To learn how to bind the map attribute to a data source field, see the Providing Data topic.
