I want to export polygon Arc list to txt file for that

I created topologygraph for personal geodatabase feature class (polygon) using ITopologyGraph::build.

I got polygon FIDs but I am not getting IDs for individual edges of polygons.

Can you say what software or programming language you want to do this in? It sounds like an adjacency matrix might help, but I don't fully understand the problem. – djq Jan 30 '11 at 12:23
questions sounds strangely like… from user with strangely similar handle 'srikanthrao' – gotchula Jan 30 '11 at 15:51

why not just run the gp PolygonToLine tool ? (ArcINFO only)

it takes polygon input, writes out a line feature class with LEFT/RIGHT polygon ID.

The individual edges in a topology based solely on a polygon featureclass don't have ID's. You would need to write out the geometry of the edges to a polyline featureclass, then use their OID's (as suggested by gotchula).
