I have edited a shape file in ArcGIS 9.3.1. and now I want to export the contents of the shape file in a csv or xls format for use in another software package. I find the Geodatabase export choice unworkable and an unwanted distraction. Same with dbf, the only other choice I am offered by the Arc software.

Dear Walter

try it

Stop Edit then Open Attribute Table - Export it to .dbf

.dbf file can easily be open by Excel 2010 or you can import .dbf into Ms Access table and get your results.

Thanks jive

There is already a dbf with the shape file name, as part of the shape file package. I could rename it and so on but it seems a round about way of doing things

Cheers

Actually when we create a shape file , it is not a one file,

it is the combination of 6 files i,e .sbx .cpg .dbf .shp .shx .prj

we can not open a single file.

it only be read by Arc Catalog or Arc Map

that's why I suggest that open attribute table of that shape file and then export it , this .dbf is convertible.

Thanks
