If you have a City and Zip Code as their own fields and they are both on the viz, City will always geocode, even if Zip Code is on Detail.
If you want to see a map that geocodes Zip and displays a label with City and Zip, you will need to create a calculated field.
Does that help?

Thanks for your reply and the info. I would upload the Tableau file but I can't at this time. When I tried the calculated field method it's not working, when I choose the calculated field in a filled map - tableau will automatically remove the calculated field zip code, city and replace it will city. In a symbol map, nothing is displayed the zip, city names are not recognized. Just to clarify, I do not have access to web with the Tableau server, I get an error online maps can not be loaded. However, as I mentioned, I can see the zip code and city names fine in a field map but only when I hover over each city, one at a time.
When you tried the calculated field method, what error did you get OR what happened?
What did you have on the Marks card in the Filled Map?
-what was on Detail?
-what was on Label?
The more detail you can share with me, the easier it will be for me to understand how this is working and how to help you. If you can include step by step instructions for recreating your viz and explain what errors you encounter as you go, it will help in troubleshooting.
Thanks for the reply. When I try to do a filled map, the calculated field zip code,city gets removed and replaced with city automatically by Tableau. When I try to do a symbol map, the calculated field remains but the map is blank (zip and city aren't recognized). I am attaching a screen shot of the setup. Thanks
I also created another map using just the zip code and get the same results. I can see the zip codes but only one at a time if I hover over it. Might be easier to resolve if I can get that part working to print to .PDF and display the zip codes in the map.
looks like I got it working ok. Instead of using the calculated field. I went back to the original map that is using the zip code, next I drop the corresponding city field onto the map. In order to get the city to actively display on the map, I had to drag the field onto the Mark Card ABC 123 Label and it worked. Thanks very much for the assistance with this issue.
