Using Map 3D 2010, I have edited a shape file of water lines originally create using ESRI ArcInfo. I connected to it using "Data>Connect to Data" under Display Manager tab, then added features and added some attribute data in the table, then checked the features in.
1. ArcView 3.3 and 9.3 won't read the shapefile correctly - the new features don't show up graphically. I can see them in the table though. Perhaps ESRI products aren't suppose to be able to read AutoCAD shape files?
2. I have a "LENGTH" field that I want to populate with the actual length of each feature. Is this possible?
