Since ArcGIS Desktop 9.1, ArcMap schematics has had the ability to export diagrams as shapefiles or feature classes. This functionality is used to take advantage of the core labeling and symbology available in ArcMap for finished output. However, the only link back to the original features from the exported diagram features is the objectid field, so a join can be created from the exported tables to the original tables. When this process is done frequently, it becomes more difficult. For this reason, the product was enhanced at ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 Service Pack 4 to allow the exporting of all the related feature attributes to happen automatically.
This is accomplished by way of a registry setting.
Warning: The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary. Esri cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions; therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.
