LOAD (Command)

Makes the symbols in compiled shape (SHX) files available for use by the SHAPE command.

A shape (SHP) file must first be compiled with the COMPILE command before it can be loaded with the LOAD command. Once a compiled shape (SHX) file is created and loaded, it is loaded automatically thereafter. The compiled shape (SHX) file must be available each time you edit the drawing.

The Select Shape File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box) is displayed. Enter the file name, or select a file name from the list.
