Hi ken

Three is three way of converting poly to point features
1. Arc GIS 9.x
   Arc Tool Box----Data Mangement Tool----Features----Feature to point

2. Arc Info (workstation)
   if you have a polygon coverage then go to tools of Edit tools and then
conversion tools----Topology-------Create labels
Now open it in Arc View, when u will single click on the coverage on the
ADD window, it will show three sub-heads under the main coverage head. Add
the data and assign data from the raw orginal poly coverage using
Geoprocessing Wizard and then convert it to .shp file for further use.

3. Arc Info

   If u have a region instead of poly then go to edit----change edit
feature to label and clean & Build as LABEL, and then follow the same
procedure in Arc View as mentioned in No. 2
