when importing a new shapefile in pathfinder office to later be exported to the trimble geoxt, and selecting the option to import with an existing data dictionary does there need to be some common unique ID? What connects the the data dictionary to the new shapefile? Do I need to enter all of the attributes from the existing data dictionary into my shapefile? This would be a tedious task when my data dictionary has more than 40 attributes.
I have already tried to import --> properties --> and chose the 3rd option to import with an existing data dictionary but when I export and then check the file in Terrasync on the trimble, no data is associated.
