This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  1. use Split tool in Editor toolbar and Split the line based on 100 meters (use "into equal parts ")
  2. Create points from vertices : use "Feature Vertices To Points" tool (ArcToolboxb=> Data Management Tools => Features => Feature Vertices To Points)
  3. Extract the Point Elevation: Use "Extract Values To Points" tool (ArcToolbox => Spatial Analysis)

There are lots of options in the split tool. When I try to put 100 the "ok" button fades away. – user2543 Apr 25 '13 at 8:46
I think you don't have license to use Interoprability Extension – wetland Apr 25 '13 at 9:38
If you have Xtools pro , you can use "Split Polylines" – wetland Apr 25 '13 at 9:52
