I recently bought ArcGIS hoping to use it to present fieldwork data.  It was demonstrated at an Edexcel launch event and it seemed easy to import data from an excel worksheet.  However, I can't work out how to do it.  If anyone can help, that'd be great.

Having worked closely with Val over a great number of years firstly via SLN and then with SAGT I am delighted she has been presented with this award from RSGS. Val has, over the years shared so many ideas, resources and above all her enthusiasm for this wonderful subject. A very special lady indeed.  :)
