Dear Forum-User,

I am looking for a possibility or tool to export a sketch properties table. I have a polyline with coordinates and heights at each vertex of this polyline. I can access these properties via the sketch properties. For my futher processings I need to export this sketch properties table. So, does anybody know a possibility to export this table?

Thank you very much in advance!!!

As far as I know you would have to create your own table tool using Python.  You can read the geometry table data using the script in the help for reading polyline geometries posted here.  Basicallly you would have to integrate the creation of a table with the correct schema and an insert cursor and would replace the print statements in the code below with statements that wrote attributes to a new row that would be inserted into the table.

import arcpy

infc = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)

# Enter for loop for each feature
#
for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(infc, ["OID@", "SHAPE@"]):
    # Print the current multipoint's ID
    #
    print("Feature {0}:".format(row[0]))
    partnum = 0

    # Step through each part of the feature
    #
    for part in row[1]:
        # Print the part number
        #
        print("Part {0}:".format(partnum))

        # Step through each vertex in the feature
        #
        for pnt in part:
            if pnt:
                # Print x,y,z coordinates of current point
                #
                print("{0}, {1}, {2}".format(pnt.X, pnt.Y, pnt.Z))
            else:
                # If pnt is None, this represents an interior ring
                #
                print("Interior Ring:")
        partnum += 1

There was a sample script in v9.x to write to text file (Generate format). Perhaps this will get you most of the way there.
