Background:

I have an table in ArcGIS Pro that has existing rows. I'm able to copy/paste rows from an Excel spreadsheet  to replace the existing Attribute Table data.

Like this:

  • Click on an existing cell in the Attribute Table
  • Use CTRL+V to paste

GIF:

That works as expected. The existing data has been replaced.


Question:

I want to do something similar to the above, but this time I want to paste Excel data as new rows in the attribute table, not replace the data in existing rows.

Is there a way to paste data from Excel as new rows?

 

ArcGIS Pro 3.0.3; mobile geodatabase.

It looks like the answer is yes. Steps:

  1. Copy the data from Excel.
  2. Create a new row by hitting "Click to add new row" at the bottom of the table.
  3. Hit enter to commit the row.
  4. Hit the ESCAPE keyboard key to stop editing that cell.
  5. Use CTRL+V to paste the data.

New rows have been created from the pasted data, as expected.

@Bud - unrelated to your question, what app(s) did you use for the animated GIF?
