I am pretty new to ArcMap, only learning this program within the last few days.

I have this parcel data in a .shp file, as well as a proposed highway. I need to find the addresses of each parcel and export them into a database, excel file, etc.Parcel + Proposed Highway.

I know I can use the Geocode tool and find the address by holding the left-click button, but I am not sure how to extract the information.

You may not need to geocode for this. You could try using the Spatial Join tool (join the parcels to the proposed highway), or even the Select by Location too.

Open the attribute table when the parcels are highlighted, under Table Options in the top left click Export and you can export the table. You can export as a File and Personal Geodatabase table, a dBase table and text file.

  • I have done this exact thing. I open the attribute table up, I get all the information I need except the address. Attached a link here to show what I am talking about. postimg.org/image/pq09cexdt Commented Apr 26, 2016 at 21:11
  • Try Mapperz suggestion if there is no address information in the attribute table.
