I have created Thematic map with one column in Mapinfo. Is it possible to create Thematic Map using two columns in Mapinfo?

For Example:

I have a column with name of place and a column with date. Is it possible to combine name of place and date to generate thematic map.

You could choose the "Expression..." at the end of the list of columns when choosing the table/layer and field to use for your thematic map. This would allow you to combine these two columns using the Expression dialog with a statement like this:

name_of_place + " " + some_date_column

It is alse possible to create Bivariate Thematic Mapping - have a look in the help system in MapInfo Pro to read more about this
