MapExport Cogo Points (Data) to ESRI??

I've got Cogo Points, collected with a GPS unit, (in Civil 3D v2013) representing Valve Vaults and Fire Hydrants for a city.  Each point contains Property Data (full description) that represents its structure number.  I need to transfer this data with the point into ESRI .shp files.


In using the MAPEXPORT command, choosing 'Points.... when I go to the Data tab > [Select Attributes] button, I don't see where to select the Description attribute, which holds my structure number data. 


Is there a way to specify that this (structure number) data be exported during MAPEXPORT command?


Thanks in advance,



ps: the attached file has a screen shot-  showing Properties of my Cogo Point

why not using the Civil3D point export, that creates a (structured) ascii-file which is good enough to be imported in ESRI products. MAPEXPORT does not have access to C3D-internals.


Try it, command is: _AECCEXPORTPOINTS
