Using the Add CAD Fields tool
Many of the reserved CAD fields viewable in a CAD feature class attribute table can also be used for populating values back to a CAD file. When using the Export To CAD tool, use the Add_CAD_Fields tool to add several reserved CAD fields to a feature class at one time. You can add fields in categories: Entity, Layer, Text, and Document. After running the tool, the appropriate values can be entered individually or populated with the Field Calculator.
- Open the Add CAD Fields tool.
Drag a feature class from the table of contents or a Catalog window into the Input Table text box.
- Or use the browse button , navigate to the source data, and click Add.
- Uncheck any categories of CAD fields you do not want to add to the table.
- Click OK to run the tool.
