In 28960761 Not Locked.xlsm, in the "Map" worksheet, a change to a value in Rows 1 and 3 for columns F to AI, will change the size of the shape in the map.

I attempted to use file 28960761 Not Locked.xlsm as a template to create a new file called 3806 Berwick Example.xlsm

But In the "Map" worksheet in 3806 Berwick example.xlsm, I moved the adjustable values from Rows 2 and 4 to column B.
Now, a change to the values in column B will not change the size of the shape in the map.
I am seeking help to fix this problem.

Problems I noticed:
1. Berwick sub UpdateMap_Click is not called automatically. In Not Locked, it was called by a Worksheet_Change sub in the Map worksheet.
2. Berwick sub UpdateMap_Click gets the name of the shape objects from worksheet Adjustable Weighting Table column A--but the shape names actually occur in column C. Furthermore, those values start in row 5, not row 7 (Constant FIRST_DATE_ROW). As a result, even if UpdateMap_Click is called, it can't reference any of the shape objects.
