A coordfile contains a head record and a set of survey point records. A point record contains a group of fields: plane survey coordinates and a number of attributes.

1. Point Record Fields

Some coordfile point record fields are numeric and others are alphanumeric (or textual). Some are editable and others read-only. Some are required and others optional.

2. To Add, Delete, or Edit a Point Record

From the CoordFile menu, choose Edit Point.

  1. CoordFile | Edit Point...
  2. Enter the Point number — which must be a positive integer — or navigate to it via Prev., Next, etc.
  3. Enter or edit the point's details.
  4. Add, Delete, or Update the point as appropriate.

Edit the coordinates or description of a survey point via the Edit Point dialog.

3. To Renumber a Point Record

  1. CoordFile | Edit Point...
  2. Enter the Point or navigate to it via Prev., Next, etc.
  3. Renum... the point as appropriate, optionally recording the old number in the Name or Note.

From the Edit Point dialog, choose Renum, then in the Renumber Point dialog, enter a new number.
