I need help importing an excel file with length and area coordinates to create a polygon layer. This is likely a stupid question, but I tend to learn as I go.  I originally exported the polygon layer from a Geodatabase Feature Class to Excel so I could do a lot of data filtering. I didn't make any changes to the information it had for the polygons. It had area and length information instead of x/y coordinates. (Shape_STAr, Shape_STLe; Shape_Leng, Shape_Area - if that means anything) 

 

I now want to reload the final version back into ArcGis. There is no Lat/Lon (x/y) data, just shape area and length. Did I need to create some new fields before I exported the original file? I'd have to have to start all over, after all the work of editing the original file.
