Getting Attribute Data into Arc/INFO from a DBF format

Database files (.dbf) can be converted from dbf to an INFO file format with a conversion command at the Arc prompt:

Arc:   DBASEINFO <dbase_file> <info_file> {DEFAULT | DEFINE}

Arc:  dbaseinfo air_data.dbf  airdata

After conversion to INFO format, the INFO file can be joined or related to the coverage feature attribute table.

Remember, files in INFO cannot be seen by name in your NT Explorer Window -- they reside within the INFO folder with an internally generated name (e.g. arc0003.dat and arc0003.nit).  You can confirm their existence by using the DIR INFO command in Arc, or just DIR in  INFO.
