Hey yall,

Been a while since I've posed a question so thought I'd reer the ugly 
head again.

What I am tryin to do is start by using a SHP file with close to 15000 
points. The shp file is suposedly nad27. for each point I would like to 
extract the nad27 co-ordinates of each site, reproject them to nad83, 
and DDMMSS and DDMM.SS to an output file.

the final goal is to have a CSV file that can be imported into a silly 
proprietary dabase. the CSV would look something like


I think that's right... projections still confuse this geographer from 
time to time.

I'm not sure if maybe you'd need a NAD27E, NAD27W format.

any ideas? Or resources towards examples of this procedure?
