how to import .dlg from usgs to arcmap 10

Discussion created by tuckerstone on Apr 30, 2012
hey everyone,

i'm a fairly new GIS user so i don't know if i'm posting this in the right forum, but i'm having trouble importing/converting data with a .dlg extension into arcgis 10. according to the help function, there should be an "import from dlg" tool in arctoolbox but it's not there. i'm starting to think, and my professor as well, that .dlg isn't compatible in arcgis 10. does anybody have an idea what could be going on, or could direct me to the answer?

[background - i'm trying to import a usgs .dlg showing geologic data, or convert it to a shapefile, or something]

it would be so great if you could help me!!!
