I'm totally lost here. The 2 people who were in charge of this project left last year and now it's time to update this data. We have a Geodatabase with multiple features. One being SLEEVES, we have 4 updates to these from our client. They sent them in an email in Excel format. So I have the coordinates of each point and other descriptive data. That's all I have to work with. Basically I need to add these 4 lines to the database with all the other sleeves so they show up in the affected MXD maps as well. If anybody could walk me through this I'd really appreciate it. Not sure where to begin. ArcCatalog or ArcMap or both? Thank you

You can create an XY Event Layer from the excel table using the Make XY Event Layer tool.  You can then Append the output from this tool to the SLEEVES feature class.

Thanks JSkinn3 Can you elaborate a little more? I'm really new to ARC and not sure what you mean. I see that the sleeve in the GDB are a LINE Feature, which is odd to me cause I thought they were points. Maybe since they are sleeves and have a begin/end. I had the 4 lines in Excel brought into ARC using the XY event. So now I have a 4 pt shapefile. How do I append them? Using Arc and the merge tool?

I would recommend contacting Tech Support.  They will be able to walk you through this process much faster.

Seems like I'm close but I cant get the data to load. I have a new sleeve (blank)feature created to try and get these 4 sleeves added. I have all my fields loaded in the new blank feature.. I get the following when I run the Append. I'm using the blank sleeve feature for now till I can figure out how to add it to the full sleeve feature. Any thoughts? thanks
