Hi,

Can you please send me the link for the template. I believe that either it is because you need ArcInfo or because you need the file to be compiled under 9.3 and it has been compiled under 9.2 . Or perhaps it is using some extensions you don't have.

Thanks

Hi,

I have taken a look at the pre-requisites which are available here:

http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=14090

and  it says:

NOTE: This script ONLY works with ArcGIS 9.0, 9.1 or 9.2 with any license level - including ArcView (I finally had a chance to test it). It will not work with any earlier version of ArcGIS.

In other words, perhaps it is because you are using ArcGIS 9.3 (?). The way to work around it is to access the codes in 9.2 export the forms and the basic files than importing them back into 9.3 .


I hope it is not like speaking French to you  :o

Hi Fazlin,

I have exported all the modules and forms into separate files. Just open your AG 9.3 and press Alt + F11 to open the VBA environment and then import them all one by one.
Rename your project as cartogramcreator.mxt. This should do the trick.

You can download the files here.

I hope this would work with you.

Hi.
Thank you so much for your help. There is another one tool that can create cartogram which is Mapresso. It works with Java platform. However, I did not really understand how to use this tool because the lack of knowledge on Java application.

Hi, Refer to the module that you give me, the 'frm.Selectfile.frm' cannot be imported in VB. Sorry, why?

Hi,

I will see if I can get someone with the 9.3 to help me test. I will keep you posted.

Thanks.
