Hi All,

Is it possible to export a shapefile to Excel?

I have a polygon shapefile which is comprised of 26 areas. I'd like to export this shapefile to Excel as a shape so that I can do some ad-hoc area profiling work where users can click on the 26 areas to show certain information.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to:

A) Export the shapefile to Excel so Excel can see it as a shape object (for VBA programming) and

B) Export the shapefile so that it's recognized as 26 different shapes, not just one large shape?

I hope that makes sense,

Thanks for your help,
