Qlik Sense Map Newbie

Hello Professionals

I have a dumb question:

I am attempting to load a map of our sales reps. However, i am trying some tests with data by zip code.

When i go to load files into Qlik Sense Load Prep.

DataType_Qlik.png

I get the options for field types:

(1) General

(2) Date

(3) Time stamp

I've seen examples where it would have location?

Any idea how i could pull that type of data type or make it an option?

The true issue is when i load the data and try to map it... the option isnt there when i drop the map into Qlik Sense.

Hello Andrey,

Thank for that, but if i have a file of zip codes and wanted to plot it.

I cannot in the map visual, i drop it and it doesn't recognize the data as location.
