I have a problem when exporting to new shapefile by ArcMap 10.5. I use "add join" to join attribute from table (dbf file) to shapefile. Afterword, I need to export it to a new shapefile. It seemed to export successfully except every field contained character (text) in attribute table have been changed to number. However, this problem has not occurred in some computers with same version of ArcMap (10.5). I am not sure that this needs to be technically fixed outside ArcGIS environment or not.
Can anyone help me to solve this problem?
