Convert Shape file (points) to CSV or TXT

I’m having some trouble with shape files.


I’ve generated a shape file (I think) from a raster by using the ‘Raster to Point’ and then ‘Extract values to points’ functions however I now need to convert the output shape file (points) into a CSV or TXT file. Ultimately I need to be able to view the data in excel (2010) such that I can see ‘point ID’, X, Y and Z in the columns of the spreadsheet.


I’m sure there is some unfathomably simple solution to this problem but I haven’t yet been able to find one on the net.


If anyone out there has any idea how to achieve this I’d greatly appreciate any help you could offer.


P.S. It would be generous to call be a novice at this stuff so if you have a solution for me please spell it out in layman’s terms.


Cheers folks
