Is their a way to create a label field that I can populate myself? I.E. I would like to create an attribute of "Locator Names" and populate it by the person who manages our fiber in that area.

<p>Hi Nicholas,</p><p> </p><p>Yes, you can add columns to your attribute table and, once in "edit mode", you can edit the contents of the fields directly.  When adding columns you'll have an opportunity to declare the field type, size, etc.  Do a quick search in ArcGIS Help for "Add Column" and you should find a nice step-by-step walkthrough.</p><p> </p><p>Chris</p>

Yes, sometimes the things in the software that you'd think should be straightforward turn out to be a little more complicated. Glad it helped!

that's awesome - I asked three university GIS professionals how to move the labels and no-one could tell me!
