Good Afternoon:

If the below screen shot you can see the shapefile POLE does not have a
Coordinate System defined.
When I place the shapefile in with another shapefile with a defined
coordinate system UTM 17 the POLE shapefile does not auto correct and plot
properly?

Any suggestions?

is there any way to get my point attribute data back?
thanks!

Hello Mary Ann,

Have you checked out the Concurrency Management Pro software that Cartesoft
has produced?  It is an application that is integrated with ArcGIS.  The
website is: http://www.cartesoft.us/products/concurrencymanagement.htm

Our company currently does not own the software but I have seen a demo and
met with a representative at the SHRUG conference.

It may help out with your needs.

Hello Shruggies ..

This post is to inquire as to how everyone is managing their traffic
concurrency and also, if you are tieing it to your GIS systems.
Specifically looking for information on database management methodologies.
Ideally, would like to find a module or accessory program to GIS but there
just doesn't seem to be much out there.  How is everyone else managing
their programs?

Here's a little bug that bothers me.


In most languages, there is a way to embed special characters in a string
literal.


So that, for example if $ has a meaning to a language, you might use %$ in
a literal to tell the language to embed the $ sign in the literal and not
run the $ function (whatever it may be).  In this example, a %% would tell
the parser that the literal contains a percent sign.


I have not been able to find a similar feature in the VB scripting language
(I've tried a bunch of the "usual" special characters, but none seem to
work).  So in a literal (which starts and ends with a " sign) if you want
to include the " sign as part of the literal, there is no way to tell VB
that " is a symbol and not the end  of the string.  I have temporarily
gotten around this by using two ' signs in my literals (e.g., for degrees,
minutes and seconds of lat/long) but there has to be a better solution.


I looked through the VB 6.0 manuals and could not find such a solution,
however.


Any thoughts?

I hope that I can help. I've found that the solution to this can vary
depending if you are using VBScript in an ASP page, "real" VB code in a VB
program, or VB code in a VBA program/macro. The parser or compiler being
used can often make a difference. I usually have to play around the variety
of techniques used for special character display and use. That being said
...

With VB the solution can vary depending on the character being used. As you
pointed out, quotes are usually repeated, so to get "My Text" with the
quotes you have to use:

        myvar = """My Text"""

Depending on the parser, you might try a backslash,  \ ,  that is often the
escape character in many languages.

For Windows command and batch programs you will have to double up percent
signs, %%, to get only one sign to print.

If the environment supports it, you can try the chr() function to put in
the special character. A degree sign in extended ASCII "should" be
chr(167). I'm attaching the 2 ASCII tables I use for reference.



Now, if the parser is Unicode aware, then you have to get the Unicode
chart. You're on your own there - I'd Google it.

Speaking of Unicode and ASCII, web browsers, MS Office apps, and other
programs vary in their support of special characters. That's why the ASCII
tables I have are GIFs.

I hope I helped and didn't just repeat stuff you already knew.

OK, everyone here's the solution.

Several people said you need a double quote.

This is true, but if you are starting your string literal with a " mark,
you actually need a triple quote!!!  E.g., """
So I found the following would work (assume that LAT_SS = 23.345.

LAT_SS & """ N"

Displays correctly as:

23.345" N

Thanks, it was the third " mark that threw me off.
