Are you sure you mean to export annotation to .shp? You cannot have an annotation shapefile so you can only export it to a geodatabase (personal, file or SDE) or a coverage. (This is assuming you're talking about ArcGIS) –  Loz Aug 16 '12 at 4:57
Thanks Loz If pInFeatureClass.FeatureType = esriFeatureType.esriFTAnnotation Then pExportOp = New ExportOperation() pExportOp.ExportFeatureClass(pInDsName, Nothing, Nothing, pGeometryDef, pOutDatasetName, Nothing) End If Above code is working fine to export a featureclass to shapefile.But i am unable to change the field name through this code.And Yes, I am working with ArcGis.Any Help? –  Navish Aug 16 '12 at 5:48
