Topic: trouble importing a shapefile in order to run the report wizard

I am having problems with trying to do what I was told was a very simple thing? Firstly we are on a virtual Recorder 6 so it is not loaded on our PC's. I have the shapefile/s generated from GIS and I try to add it to the base map without assigning a location, first error message appears ( a small rectangle with a circle with i in the middle and a dash to the right?) I shall try to add a photo. It will not add the shapefile without associating it with a location so I played with it for a while and finally got the buffer boundary to appear but it looks like Recorder cant see it!!! When I try to run the report wizard using a polygon I get "an essential sheet cannot be found in the current map dataset". I also get "invalid sheet type" and error 29!
As you can probably guess I am not very software savvy nor am I technical wizard so if someone has any idea what I have done wrong can you point me in the right direction.
Many thanks,
Mhairi

Can you check to see If you can manually add a polygon boundary by drawing one on the base map. Just a large  square  will be fine. I can provide instructions If you need it.  I just want to make sure mapping  in general is working before looking at polygon import.

Hi Mike, and thank you for such a quick response. I had to reset the maps, the UK one gave me an error message "error code 5- File access denied". The GB map let me draw a boundary square but when I came to save it "finish polygon and add to polygon layer" the same wee message as the previously attached photo appeared.
Thanks again Mike.

Looks like you do not have permission to write to the folder where the maps files are stored. I get back to you asap on how best to resolve this.
