Problem: Convert PC Arc/Info coverages to Workstation Arc/Info coverages.
After replacing a PC ARC/INFO coverage with a Workstation ArcInfo coverage of the same name, the resulting project file will not open.
The .apr file expects dBASE files instead of INFO files.
- Open the .apr file in a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad.
- Search for the string dbase.
- For each one it finds, verify if it is a PC coverage .dbf file. If so, replace the word dBASE with INFO.
- Save the project.
- Open the project in ArcView.
ArcView will go into Project Repair and prompt you for the new location of INFO tables.
