You can use XTools extention, found in file>Extetions>XTools
then a menu named XTools will apear. Activate the theme that you want to calculate its area and then open XTools menu and there click "Update area, perimeter, acres and length" command. All area of the polygon features will be calculated. Note that this command works only for layers that have metric coordonate system like UTM or Lambert. For geographic projection you will get wrong results.
Wish you success

adding new area Mehdi Mirzaee MMirzaee <a href="mailto:M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.ir">M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.ir</a>Hi

For the first time, I had this probelm, but I finally solve it, Don't worry at the first!!
First, save your background on a shape file or a raster file. After that >>
File,Create new area, initially balnk
then follow windows...
you can see a world map, after that you have to adjust your project map on it. you can use your mouse for selecting a box for focousing on a part of world.
But I advice you another way, After saving your shape file, right click on box for choosing layer, browse your shape file and choose it. after that you don't see any thing !!! :) don't worry!! you don't set your boundary yet. Thus Right click on your map, choose Set Area Boundary...in the left hand you will see your project map, zoom on it and be sure that in right panel you will see that map. Press Ok and Enjoy by WEAP!!!
