    Angry Waste Water System Inventory Update

    I am new to the GIS software and I have collected approx 137 new GPS locations for manholes and lift stations, working with the original mxd I am having trouble updating the positions of these features. if I update the attribute table the shape file does not update and therefore visually on the screen the manhole is in the same location?, if I physically move the point with new coordinates (X,Y) it does not update the attribute tables?
    Question is how to update these positions where everything dynamically is on the same page???

    Are you trying to update the X and Y information in the attribute table and push those changes to the point on the screen or vice-verse? The attributes information is not connected to the shape. If you want to update the field information, you can use the Calc Geometry tool(right click the field). You could also download the infrastructure editing template and set up the Attribute Assistant to calc the x and y fields on the change of the shape. This tool is an editor extension that has rules that can do what you are looking to do.

    You need to delete the field and re-add it.
