I am trying to do a map using zip codes in Qlik Sence. Is there a way to tell the data to look at the zip as a Geo Data field for "zip"? I am only seeing the option for 4 different geo field type and zip is not one of them.
Thank you! Can you help me understand where the location drop down is found in Qlik?

When I try and plot some simple points on the map with US zip codes, I get the error "the following locations could not be found" and it shows my zip codes, but with the 0 missing from the beginning. For example a zip code of "01234" shows as "1234".
Does QLik know how to automatically map the zip codes against its default map? Or do I have to do something else?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm trying to plot an area map for Europe, but Qlik Sense only recognize France/Germany/Spain zip codes, and cannot recognize other countries like Austria or UK.
Is there any specific format in the database I should follow for plotting different countries?
There is no universal standard for postal codes, each country has their quirks.
I recommend this post for tips to improve
UK is especially special, see this thread:
I've read all your posts but I still have an issue.
In France we have some oversea territories that do not work on qlik.
I have used their country code ('RE', 'GP','GF','MQ,...) but qlik do not recognise their postal code : 97100, 97200,...
Do you have a solution?
