Hi guys.  I just finished my MapInfo sample map download.  I have a MapInfo Professional mapping tool for managing geographically-based assets.  How do I import my MIF file to MapInfo?  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

When importing MapInfo MIF/MID files, you need to have the .mif and the .mid files under the same folder. The symbol types are the same with AutoCAD Map 3D point objects. You will be unable to import the MIF/MID symbol types directly. But if you save the symbol type information under the MID file column, it is possible to map each symbol type to a block in the present AutoCAD Map 3D Drawing. For this, you need to get the MIF file ready. Put the name of each symbol type on the database field. Get the AutoCAD Map 3D drawing ready. Make the same symbol as the blocks under the AutoCAD Map 3D drawing. While importing, do a point-block mapping and choose the check box so you can get the block name from data and choose the symbol type that you made.
