What is an *.e00 file?
A *.e00 file is an ESRI Interchange file. This is a coverage that has been compressed in a proprietary ESRI format. However, you can open up such a file and view it in ArcMap.
How do I import a *.e00 file in ArcGIS 10.x?
Open ArcToolbox. Go to Conversion Tools > To Coverage > Import from e00.
Note: This is the old ArcView 3.x tool for conversion. Please make sure that the naming conventions are upheld. (If importing a coverage, grid, or tin, names are limited to a maximum of 13 characters long, and cannot have spaces. Also, do not save in a geodatabase.)
What's this exclamation point next to my file mean?
If there's a red exclamation point to the right of the filename when you open up your map document (*.mxd), that means ArcView can't find your data files.
How do I avoid getting the exclamation point?
There are a couple of ways to avoid this - always make sure that you save all data files associated with the map document (*.mxd). Don't move any of your data files around. Most GIS information is comprised of many files and every file is important so that the data is viewed properly, and this varies from file type to file type. The only way to know which files are associated together is to look at the names — almost all files that are associated have the same name, just with different suffixes. For example, in a shapefile, there are a minimum of 3 files, and up to 8 files that comprise the working data — so while you're looking at "hamilton.shp" — hamilton.shx, hamilton.dbf, hamilton.shb, hamilton.prj, and a bunch of other files are working to make that view possible. Coverages are very complicated, and they come in their own folders, and add another folder 'info' to any place they're located, or if there's already an info folder, they'll add data to that folder. Tiff files tend to come with the image, plus projection files.
