Editing Maps in Finale 2009

I wasn't able to find a specific answer to this issue through searching, so I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out...

I'm using Finale 2009 and VDL 2.5 and I'm trying to figure out how to edit the percussion map for VDL.  More specifically, I'm trying to figure out how I can map the tenor  and bass drums to FACEA on the staff, along with various snare sounds to different note heads.  Is there an option inside of Finale 2009 that will let me accomplish this?
Hi Wynder,

Are you using the 2009 templates?

If so, try this:

1) Select the [b]Staff Tool[/b] and double-click on the quad or bass staff

2) In [b]Staff Attributes[/b], click [b]Select[/b] next to [b]Notation Style : Percussion[/b]

3) Make sure the correct map is selected then click [b]Edit[/b]

4) In the [b]Percussion Map Designer[/b] under [b]Notes to use for Staff "; ";[/b], click [b]All Named Notes[/b]

5) Click [b]Done[/b], [b]Select[/b], and [b]OK[/b]

Now try to enter some notes.  Are you able to enter notes on the correct spaces now?
