The Selection Fields Add-In provides an easy way to export your tabular data while retaining your filters. This tool creates a formula field for each selection set. For each record the formula fields contain 1 or 0 to indicate whether that row had been selected. This is particularly useful when you need to export the results of applying categories to point location data such as store type, or when selecting ZIP Codes to indicate territories.

  1. Download the file SelectionFieldsAddin.exe.

  3. Click OK and follow the step-by-step instructions to install the add-in to the appropriate program folder  (e.g. C:\Program Files\Maptitude\)
