Yes, you are right. Missed that part. :)

There is also a tool to convert MIF to Shapefile:

don't you have to export those files from mapinfo to the .mif format first
before the arctoolbox wizard will work?

It's MapInfo file.


Open ArcToolbox
Go to Conversion Tools/Import to Shapefile
Double click MIF to shapefile
In the MIF input box, navigate to where you have the MIF file saved
Choose a feature class from the drop down menu
In the output box navigate to where youd like to save the shapefile, and
give it a name.


Good luck,
