This tool uses a point dataset to create a polyline dataset with the points' attributes. The tool allows a user to select a field name from the points layer to group the line segments and the point layer fields to be copied to the line layer. Line segments are created from two points with the same attribute in the group field. The points will be assumed to be already sorted by group attribute and order. The attributes for the line segment are taken from the first point.
This tool was developed for ArcGIS 9.2, Service Pack 4 or higher and requires ArcGIS .NET Support. After running the installer program, the tool will be found in the Customize dialog in the Biogeography Tools category as "Create line from points".
A newer version for 9.3 and above is available at http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=15828
To install this tool in Vista, open a command line prompt as an administrator and use the command

If there are no spaces in the path name, the quotes aren't necessary.
