    We used to be able to do a "spatial join without creating a new feature class" in AV 3.x.  This would be a most useful tool for everyday use it seems without creating useless feature classes that you have to go back and delete.

    Esri, can't you bring this tool back from the archives for ArcGIS 10.1.x???

    I would really like to see it added to the Toolbox!
