Annotation to feature

Discussion created by moussadak on Jul 9, 2013
I don't have a lot of experience with annotation and I am hoping someone can give me a hint or a bit of help to know if what i am trying to do is possible.

We have annotation feature class sitting at an arcsde geodatabase, when i convert it into point feature (Feature to Point Tool) the output  is a feature class saved into my local personal geodatabase. When i open the attribute table of the output the textstring  field has just the numerical value and no text in it to be displayed. How can I properly  convert the annotation to a feature class and preserve the text portion.

I hope i was able to explain it well.
