Dear all,

if I classify a Polygon with dozens of attributes, they will all be sorted alphabetically. Is there any chance to GROUP these attributes according to a second attribute (I know I can do this manually, but it would not be clear in the Legend).

Example:

I have a Polyline Layer "Transportation" with these attributes:

highway (1. Attribute: car,           2. Attribute highway)
path      (1. Attribute: pedestrian, 2. Attribute path)
road      (1. Attribute: car,           2. Attribute road)
sidewalk (1. Attribute: pedestrian, 2. Attribute sidewalk)

Now I would like to Group them according to the 1. Attribute and maybe even make this visible in the Legend:

"Transportation"
     
      Car
          highway
          road
  
      Pedestrian
          path
          sidewalk



any ideas on this. Seems to be too complicated to do it directly in ArcGIS Desktop, or not ? Thanks for your input

Hmm..... :rolleyes: I just realised while typing this, that I could create Layers with the VBA request '1. Attribute="car" ' and so forth!! )

Unless I'm missing something, you just need to change the symbology - Drawing a layer using categories.
