Note: It is also recommended to disable the Snap feature before using the Split Field to ensure accuracy of the split line.

Once your line is drawn all the way through the border, double click outside of the border to create your split line and separates the two sides of the field.

The two sides of the field will be separated into yellow and red. You will also see a pop-up properties window appear.

This will allow you to change the acreage amount in either side of the split by simply changing the value in the appropriate side and then clicking apply.

Hit the select button to select corresponding colored field. Now only that side of the field will be highlighted in the selected form or report.

Then press the delete key on your keyboard.
