Esri Shape file to topology

xxxxI have imported an ArcView shape file into a drawing.
THe dat is a polygon with the object data associated in a centroid(?).

How do I create a polygon topology using this data. I have not had any luck with what I am tried.

Thanks Tim

Tim,

 

What happens is that when you import an ESRI
polygon shape file is that each polygon has its complete, closed polyline (This
is how Arc-View operates).

 

In Map you need to "Clean Up" your drawing so that
you will have only one object for each boundary. This involves using several of
the clean-up commands and eventually running "Create Topology".

 

Good luck,

Arad

Make sure you save your object data to centroids
before cleanup. Use the Mapcreatecentroids command.
