Hi there,

I have a question as to why my join is not working as I want it to. I have my tigerfile of the four counties in Florida that I am studying, at the census tract level (Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole County). Also, I have a data file .xls with numbers for each census tract of population of each race for hispanic ( I have attached this file ). I am trying to join based on census tract, but when I go to do the join, I cannot select TractID in the field I want to join on... (image below). [ATTACH=CONFIG]19080[/ATTACH] I get the option to join on all of my attributes about the population, but that would not make any sense... I'm pretty bad at joining, and could use some help to get this fixed... I can dump the shapefiles (not sure what the size is) of my census tracts if you want those, but i'll do that if asked for them.

Thanks for your help,

Nick Vielbig
