shrug-l: Conversion of State Plane point data to Lat/Long

If you are using 9.2, you can change the projection of your data frame
to WGS84 then use the calculate geometry function, which has the option
to calculate x/y based on the feature projection or the data frame
projection.  Using the data frame projection will give you lat/lon in
decimal degrees.

Subject: shrug-l: Conversion of State Plane point data to Lat/Long

I am trying to add lat/long data to an existing .mdb.  I have
successfully created x and y coordinate fields and populated the fields
based on the respective State Plane system (Florida North).  I now need
to convert the SP coordinates to lat/long.  Is this possible?


Any information would be a great help!
