5.6.1 From DRA

There is some attribute information inside the DRA file:

  • ID

  • Display label

  • Style number

  • Area (of polygon)

  • Length (of line)

  • Coordinates (seed point)

You can export this into an Excel spreadsheet through
Utilites > Database utilities > Generate database from DRA > Choose file > Open >
Tick the relevant fields > OK >

> Save as type: CSV > Specify new file name > Save

You can load this CSV file in Excel or other programs.

This is useful, for example, for a 'lookup' of District codes and names to other spreadsheets, as explained in Annex 20.3 (Excel: Lookup).
