When I save the table after I set up the classifcation and then ArcGIS save it as a INFO file and then you have two columns that you want to merge into one. Is there a better way to do that ? What I want to get the columns from FROM and TO merge into One column. These are the feet Elevation numbers.

Here is the screenshot

    What do you mean by merge? Do you want to add the values? Subtract one from the other? Show both in the same column (2800, 2900)? or...? – Emil Brundage Dec 16 '14 at 23:26
  • I'm sorry I did not explain enough.. What I want is to show the elevation to be like 2800 to 2900, for example. – PROBERT Dec 16 '14 at 23:28

To accomplish this task, you'll need to make sure that the field you are calculating to is a text field. Right-click on the field's header in the layer's attribute table and click 'Field Calculator'. If the Field Calculator dialog box, choose 'Python' as your Parser.

Then, in the Output = box, type:

str( !FROM!) + " to " + str( !TO!)

Hit OK you should see the desired results.

Or, with 'VB Script' as your Parser:

[FROM] & " to " & [TO]
