I have polygon shapefile with objects that have 'class' and 'area' values in attribute table. I want to select five biggest polygons in each class. I can't do it manually because of large number of shapefiles and objects in each shapefile. Is it possible with ArcGIS that I use? If not maybe some other software can do the trick... Thanks in advance for help.
edit: I can use file/personal geodatabase or SQL Server geodatabase as well if this is nessesary to make that selection. I will not be able to create python script, I would rather use some SQL selection.
