I have one polygon layer that has 250+ polygons. I want to get the min and max extent of each polygon into an ascii or excel file. Is there a way to do this in a batch file? I am using ArcMap 9.2
Thank you.

Mapping Center Answer:

You can use the field calculator in the Advanced mode with the following Script:

Dim dblX As Double
Dim pArea As IPolygon
Set pArea = [Shape]
coordval = pArea.Envelope.XMax  (use YMax, XMin, and YMin in successive fields)

See the IEnvelope help for all the things you could do.
