Basically, you could accept the default values and simply hit the OK button. However, you may want to assign a custom title to your analysis, which will be displayed at the top of the numerical report as the map title. You can also choose to format map labels according to one of the four available label styles.

The Hide data sheet checkbox is used to show or hide the sheet, which holds the data used for drawing the map. The Print map(s) checkbox is useful when you want to analyze more than 56 items. In fact, beyond this limit Excel cannot display all points correctly on the map. Therefore, if you have more than 56 items, deselect this checkbox. But dont worry if you forget it, MM4XL will do it for you automatically.

As you press OK the tool requires you to enter the data for the analysis.
