View Full Version : Setting Properties from fields

2009-04-15, 10:11 PM
Is there an easy way to import a SHP and then set the properties of an entity from the fields that are attached?

For example, I have a contour shape file and the contours (plines) have the elevation attached in a field named countour. Is there an easy way to set the elevation property of each of these contours using the data in the field?

Little long winded, but once you do it then its pretty easy to repeat.
