you attach data to objects, create the object data table and execute
a Draw mode query to copy the
objects into the current drawing.
To attach data to an object
- In the Attach/Detach Object Data dialog box,
select a table.
- To change the value for a field in the
table, select the data field and type a new value in the Value box.
- To overwrite any values for this table
already attached to the object, select Overwrite.
If cleared, the object
will have both the old and the new values attached.
- Click Attach To Objects.
- Select the objects.
Note If you are attaching
data to a polygon and plan to use the data with topology functions,
be sure to attach the data to the centroid of the polygon. Topology
functions do not use data attached to the polygon border.
A record with the specified
values is attached to each selected object.
