Missing polygon attributes for large datasets


Attribute data for some polygons is empty when converting large tiger datasets with TIGERTOOL or TIGERARC.


There was a problem in the TIGERTOOL.AML that did not create label points for all polygons, so not all polygons had attribute data associated with them.
