I've been asked to take a parcel layer (shapefile) that contains house numbers and create an annotation layer so the house numbers are displayed in a separate annotation layer rather than a label to the parcel layer. They'd like the ability to move and rotate the house numbers for readability. Is there a way to create an annotation layer for ArcView 3.2 that will do this? I've experimented with exporting a couple different ways and it loses it's usability once it comes outside the geodatabase in which I originally created it. Will ArcView 3.2 even read a geodatabase?
ArcView 3.2 can only access data in an Enterprise geodatabase through an SDE connection. It cannot read data in personal or file geodatabases. Even with an enterprise geodatabase I'm not sure 3.2 can do anything with annotations, I never tried personally.
