Creating a Default Legend

When you add a theme to a view, ArcView searches the data's folder for a legend file with the same name as the shapefile. Any legend (.avl) file with the same name in the same directory as a given shapefile is applied automatically. For example, if you have a shapefile called Country.shp in the same folder as a legend file called Country.avl, when you load Country.shp, ArcView loads and applies Country.avl. Of course, you can still modify the legend in the Legend Editor after loading the data, if you like.
