Hi
I have a shapefile with municipality bounderies with several attributes. I would like to overlay a quadrat grid (240 by 240) on top of the shapefile.

Then I would need to attach the attributes of the municipality, to each of the grid intersections that are inside each municipality.

thank you very much for your help

You can give a try to this two step approach:
1. Use Intersect tool on your grid lines to extract intersection points.
2. Use Spatial Join tool to extract values from municipality polygons to intersection points.

Thank,

I did not explain myself. I do need to create the quadrat grid (240 by 240) first. How can I do that?

There's the Fishnet tool.... Create Fishnet

Then there's something called 'Grids and Graticules'...this one I really haven't used much at all, creates a layer?
