Instructions for importing coverage into Arcview-PC

An ARC/INFO export file can be imported into Arcview-PC using the import command. It is advised to run this from the DOS prompt as trying to run this in the Windows environment seems not to allow you to see possible error messages.

You will first want to get to the directory where the Arcview program is loaded. From there get into the directory called 'bin' by typing cd bin. Next type import filename coverage_name. For the filename and coverage_name you will want to give the full directory name.

EXAMPLE: c:\arcview\bin\> import c:\provdata\ey901.e00 c:\provdata\ey901
