Exercise 5: Populate the new property with values

After you add a property to a feature class, you enter the values for that property for each feature in the feature class.

NoteThis exercise uses the map you modified in Exercise 2: Connect to the new SDF data.

To populate the new properties with data

  1. Expand the SDF entry in Map Explorer until you see its three feature classes. Select Roads and click Table.
  2. In the Data Table, scroll all the way to the right to see the new property.
  3. Enter the number of lanes for a few roads.

    If you enter a value that is outside the allowable range and click outside the field, a warning is displayed.

  4. Close the Data Table.

Where you are now

You connected to the SDF file you created earlier and added a new property to its schema. You entered values for the new property in the Data Table.
