Calculate Area new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply


I have a map in ArcMap where I want to calculate the area for each of several polygons inside this map.

So I open the Attribute Table, add a new field called 'Area' and choose 'Calculate Values'.

Dim Output as double
Dim pArea as Iarea
Set pArea = [shape]
Output = pArea.area

and Output in the lower field.

But when I try this, I get a message saying that the calculated value may be too large for the field. The end result is that I get a lot of zeros and only a few smaller values.

What shall I do to calculate the bigger values?

I think you just need a wider column in your table.
