Question

Why are ArcMap Selection menu items not activated when the TOC only has raster layers listed?

Answer

The selection menu items are disabled for raster layers in ArcGIS 8.1. Raster selection functionality is implemented through the raster table.

To create a raster selection:
1. Right-click the raster layer and click Open Attribute Table.
2. Click the Options button.
3. Click Select by Attributes. This will bring up the Select By Attributes window.
