I have failed to convert .amp to .shp. Any help rendered i will be grateful.
Hi Essy, the ArcPad APM file is an ArcPad map file (similar to ArcMap MXD file) and the ArcPad AMP file stores a list of the map layers of an ArcPad session which lists all the feature layers together with their display settings including the extent of your map, color, and projection environment. The ArcPad AXF file is a Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition relational database, stored as a single file and it contains multiple components, such as feature tables, feature layers (including layer definitions), data tables, and files (including VBScripts, JScripts, or Python scripts). You can open an ArcPad AXF file in ArcPad Studio and interact directly with the data tables and schema of the AXF file in Tree View. Simply right-click the table containing the contents you want to view and click Show Data option. Or you can select the Export option and export the selected data to DBF file. In the Customizing ArcPad Help documentation, search for 'Working with an ArcPad AXF file in the Tree View' for additional information and instructions. It can also be found in the TOC under 'How to Customize ArcPad with ArcPad Studio'.
Essy - would you be able to provide more details? As you know, an *.apm is an ArcPad Map Document that can reference shapefiles. Are you trying to convert the ArcPad document to a shapefile or something else? Pls advise.
I am having a related issue. I would like to be able to open my ArcPad files in ArcMap. As far as I can tell, I am only able to save my maps in arcpad as .apm files. There is no option to save as a .axf file. Do you have any idea how I can convert these .apm files to .axf files?
I am having a similar issue and im wondering if you ever figured it out. I can only save the map as a .apm file.
