I am attempting to add the x and y coordinates to the attribute table of an address point file. Is there a simple way to do this without using vba code?
Currently, I have found that I can open the attribute table, select "Add Field", select "Double" from the "Type" drop down and then add this field. From there I can select this new field in the attribute table and select "Calculate Geometry". I leave "X Coordinate Point" selected in the "Property" field and then select "OK" and it calculates. I then repeat the steps for the Y Coordinate Point.
Is this the best way to calculate the x and y coordinates? Am I missing any steps? Are these coordinates accurate?
At 10.2 there is a tool under data management that allows you to add geometry fields:
this just allows you to automate the exact same process that you have carried out using the calculate geometry function
