Manually Linking Database Records to Objects
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
Note To link records to objects, you must first define a link template for the table, and you must open the table as a linked table.
NoteYou can link records to drawing objects. You cannot link records to features from a feature source.

To link a record to an object manually

  1. Open a linked database table in the Data View.
  2. In the Data View window, select a record.
  3. In the Data View, click Links menu Link Records To Objects.
  4. Select the objects in your drawing. Press Enter.
    Note If you are linking data to a polygon and plan to use the data with topology functions, be sure to link the data to the centroid of the polygon. Topology functions do not use data linked to the polygon border.
