Create Field Definition file

Selecting this menu choice will enable creating a data set member attribute definition file for the active theme. For each attribute, the user is prompted to specify field name alias, whether to allow using the Display attribute menu choice, name of an attribute value look-up file, and a brief free-text description of the attribute. The information is written to an ASCII file with the same basename as the active theme, but with .fld instead of .shp as extension.

Note:

You must have write access to the folder of the active theme to use this menu choice.
