Step 1: Add the Subway Stations Named Table to the Repository

The first step is to create a named table in the repository that references the subway stations table (a TAB file). The TAB file contains the location data for each subway station.

To create the named table in the repository, use the following steps:

  1. Copy the subway stations TAB file to a location on the file system that is accessible to the Feature Service.
  2. Launch the Spectrum Spatialâ„¢ Manager and log in as an administrator.
  3. From the Create drop-down located in the toolbar, select Table.
    Note: This button is disabled if you do not have sufficient permissions.
    The Create Named Table page appears.
  4. In the Name field, type a name for the named table. Spectrum Spatialâ„¢ Manager will warn you if another named table exists with that name, in which case you will have to enter another name. Names are case sensitive and cannot contain the following characters: / \ : [ ] | * { } ".
  5. Select the File System data source.
  6. Use the file tree to locate the named connection and the TAB file or shapefile. Click the table so that it appears in the Table field below the file tree.
    Note: The file tree does not appear if you have no named connections. Click Create Named Connection to create one.
  7. Click Create.
    The details page for the named table appears.

The subway stations table now appears as a named table in the repository.
