Local Authority Boundary Map - Issue with boundary name from KML

Hey all,

I'm trying to map local authority district boundaries using KML file below. However the names of the districts are not being pulled through. Instead of names, I'm seeing "P1", "P2", "P3"... etc

Local Authority Districts (December 2021) GB BFC | Local Authority Districts (December 2021) GB BFC ...

I can see the names in the actual KML file but at a loss as to what's happening. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?


Names showing in actual KML file.Names showing in actual KML file.View in data model showing P1 etc.View in data model showing P1 etc.

Qlik Sense will not let you pick a field to use as name, it expects one to be called "name".

You can edit the KML file and rename it or read the values as a regular XML and link them to the features.
