Step 2, page 2 Getting Attribute Data into Arc/INFO

You can use the GET or ADD FROM commands to read attribute values directly from an ASCII file or INFO file.

Remember, when you are in INFO, you are in the /info folder. If reading an ascii file, you must indicate that the file is stored up one directory level.

GET will put the data values from an existing file, which can be an ascii file, a binary file, or an INFO file, with fixed record length, fixed item length, into an empty INFO table that has been defined to match the ascii file field definitions.

enter command>  GET ../airports.txt  COPY   (using INFO)

    tables>  get airports.txt copy        (using tables)

ADD FROM requires an ASCII comma-delimited file, which may have been created with a system text editor, or by other programs such as spreadsheets or statistical systems.  The items in the delimited data file must match the items definitions of the selected file. Character items containing blanks must be enclosed with a “double quote”.

Enter command>  ADD FROM ../airports.dat

Tables> add from airports.dat
