Export tables

You can export selected records or all records in a table to create a new table. For example, you might want to modify a table without altering the original records, share the table with a colleague, or create a table with a particular set of records.

The output table can be saved in a dBASE table, geodatabase, or comma-delimited .txt file.

  1. Right-click the table or layer in the Contents pane and choose either Open for a table or Attribute Table for a layer.
  2. Click the Menu button Menu in the upper right of the table view.
  3. Click Export Export Table. The geoprocessing pane appears to reveal the Copy Rows tool.
  4. Click the Browse button Browse for the Output Table parameter and browse to the folder or geodatabase where you want to place the exported data.
  5. Type a name and click Save in the Output Table window.
  6. Click Run to execute the Copy Rows tool.

The resultant table is saved to the specified location and added to the Contents pane.
