Open a table view to display the attribute information stored in the data source in a tabular format. Two types of table views are available, depending on how you open the table:
- Open a table view of a layer or stand-alone table from a map or scene to edit values, select or query records, and view related data.
- Open a table view from the Catalog pane or a catalog view to manage and review the data.
Tables opened from a map, scene, or a catalog view open below that view in the application by default. Adjust the project settings to control the position of a table in the project, if necessary. More than one table can be open simultaneously.
