When exporting a feature class to a dBASE (.dbf) that includes domains and subtypes, only the codes are included in a shapefile or .dbf output.
To work around this, turn on Transfer Field Domain Descriptions in the Environment Settings window, and use the Table To Table tool. This geoprocessing environment controls whether output shapefiles and .dbf tables have added fields containing domain and subtype descriptions, in addition to fields containing domain and subtype codes.
