Several years ago I wrote about how to export an ArcGIS feature’s attribute table as a CSV file. ESRI didn’t make this extremely intuitive. Since that time I’ve moved into using ArcGIS Pro and thought I’d post about doing the same thing in this application.
It’s even easier to export table records in ArcGIS Pro. You can select a subset of records in your attribute table if you aren’t trying to export the entire thing. Then, right-click on the feature and click Data -> Export Table. Alternatively, click the feature layer “Data” tab and select Export Table. A geoprocessing dialog table will open with a Copy Rows task.
Under the Output Table parameter enter a name for your table with a .csv extention. You can also choose to save your table as a .dbf, in a geodatabase or as a .txt file(comma delimited).
Incidently, if you try to save your table outside of a database but without an extention, the tool will default to exporting as a .dbf file.
This process isn’t difficult but it might throw some people off since you can’t select your extension in any dialog dropdown. You have to type it out yourself.
