A table containing pairs of XY coordinates must be loaded into ArcMap in order to use this
tool. Select the table you wish to process from the drop-down box. The tool will list the
numeric fields in the table in the five dropdown boxes from which the user must identify
the FROM X, FROM Y, TO X, and TO Y fields, and optionally the unique ID field. The tool will
create one feature per record in the input table by creating a line based on the from and to
points (note that the line therefore has consistent directionality).
The input table.
An example of a simple input table would be a text file containing four columns (the first
row should always be the field names):
FROMX, FROMY, TOX, TOY
