I just created a points Shapefile, with 300 points. Using ArcGIS 9.3. now i need to label all of them numerically, is there a way of labelling all of them, instead of me going to the attrubute table and label them manually?
Aragon deals with the placement of the labels (Maplex is infinitely better if you have it), however to actually create the numeric labels should be quite simple:
Note - FID starts at 0. So if you want your numbers to start at 1, you'll need to change
Actually strictly speaking that isn't even necessary now I look. If you just go to the "Labels" tab and click on expression, if you enter
you can use Maplex Label Engine for labelling points.
there are some videos here:
you can finf other videos here.
i hope it helps you...
