Getting Information About Features and Objects
Concept Procedure

Information about features and drawing objects can be stored within the feature or object source, as well as in an external source, such as a spreadsheet application.

For geospatial features, attribute data is part of the feature itself. Additionally, you can join external data to any feature. Using the Data Table, you can view and edit all the feature source data included in your map.

For drawing objects, you can create object tables within the drawing itself to store object attribute data. You can also link to external data using link templates. You view and edit attribute or object class data using the Properties palette or the Display Manager.
