||I have a .mdb that I have already added X,Y data to in ArcMap. However, I don't know how to export these events to a shapefile. Could I have that process spelled out for me? I looked it up on the help menu and it told me to use arccatalog, right click on the file, and choose export. However, the .mdb file that I have in ArcMap does not have exporting as an option when I right click. Importing is an option but not exporting. Also, will doing this allow me to do a "search by attributes" on these points? Not being able to "search by attributes" or edit the .mdb file that I have in ArcMap is what led to the need to be able to convert it to a shapefile in the first place. Just wanted to make sure that I'll be able to query these data after they're converted to a shapefile. Thanks so much!
