I am trying to get a list of street names and ranges for a specific area of my map. My intention is to make a street index of sorts from this data. I would like to export this data into excel if possible. Does anyone know if this can be done? If so, I would appreciate any help you can give me.

I'm using ArcGIS 9.3

Thank you.

Did you open the attribute table (right-click on layer and click the Open Attribute Table menu-item) and then copy/paste the selected records?

The first part of this answer takes care of the copy/paste steps: Export table from ArcGis to Excel file

You can also export the selected records to text or dbf and open in excel.

Thanks you for your answer and help. – Mike Mitchell Dec 29 '10 at 19:25

There are a number of tools/scripts available that will export to Excel directly from ArcMap.

Also, assuming you have Microsoft Office installed, the following method has worked for me.

  1. Create empty personal geodatabase (mdb)
  2. Export selected features into this new, empty personal geodatabase.
  3. Open up this personal geodatabase in MS Access, and the feature class created in step 2 should appear as a regular table. You should be able to export this table directly to Excel, or any number of other formats. You'll probably want to delete the geometry(SHAPE) column.
