INFO and TABLES

INFO and TABLES are two programs supplied with Arc/INFO for managing attributes.

INFO is the main relational database management system for Arc/INFO.  

TABLES also provides table management with a subset of INFO functions.  TABLES provides all the functionality needed for most database management tasks, and is a little easier to get into and out of and is less case sensitive than INFO.  

INFO is case sensitive and requires all parameters, data set names and variable (item) names to be typed in UPPERCASE

Also, you are first prompted for “username”: specify ARC

No usage help available at the INFO prompt.  Can enter “help” and the command name, and get none-GUI help,  or access ArcDoc from NT Programs menu.

Both TABLES and INFO access the same data files.

Cannot use aml’s or watch files in Tables or INFO

Conclusion: generally use TABLES

Do not forget, some table management and change is also done from Arc and ArcEdit
