You can use the Attributes window to edit the attributes of related features or records in a stand-alone table.
- Click the Edit tool on the Editor toolbar.
- Click the origin feature to select it.
- Click the Attributes button on the Editor toolbar.
- Click the origin feature in the Attributes window.
- Double-click the origin and related features or records to expand their nodes.
- If the related feature's layer or table is not currently in the map, the icon next to it is displayed in gray. If you want to add the layer or table to ArcMap, right-click the entry for the related feature or table and click Add to Map. When the layer or table is in the map, its icon is colored.
- Right-click the related item to open a menu.
- Click Copy Attributes to copy the attributes.
- Click Paste Attributes to paste the attributes.
- Click Select to select the feature or record, or click Unselect to deselect it if it is already selected.
- Click Remove From Relationship to delete the relationship between the related feature or record and the origin. This only removes the relationship; it does not actually delete the feature or record from its table.
- Click Delete to delete the actual feature or record from the table.
- Click Open Attribute Table (opens the table and shows all records) or click Open Table Showing Selection (opens the table to the view showing only selected records) to view the table of the related feature or record.
- Click Layer Properties or Table Properties to open the Properties dialog box.
- To update any attribute values, type them in the grid while the related feature or record is selected.
The related features or records are listed in the Attributes window under the relationship label, which is specified when a relationship class is created. By default, the label is the name of the destination feature class or table. If the label is different from the feature class or table name, the name and label are both shown in the Attributes window tree. For example, in a relationship between parcel polygons and a table of landownership information, you might set a label to show that a parcel is owned by a landowner. In this case, the related records are listed under the node for landowner - is owned by.
