I have a point shapefile with a lot of data that needs to be cleaned up. I'd much prefer to work with the table in Excel. When I use the "Table to Excel" tool, I can get the data into Excel, but when I use the "Excel to Table" tool to bring it back into ArcMap, I lose the points. The "Shape*" field is gone!
Is there any way to edit shapefile data in Excel without losing the points? Or do I just have to make my changes in ArcMap?
