Hello,

I have a set of dots, the green dots. I want to connect them all to the small blue dot, using the smallest distance. [ATTACH=CONFIG]21779[/ATTACH]

The lines can be anywhere, and there can be as many lines as necessary. Accordingly, I don't have a network file, just dots. It is either a minimum spanning tree problem.

Short of manually hacking it out, I have no idea how to do this.

Thanks,

John

Hi John,
ET GeoWizards can do this, see:

Need to buy a licence though.
Thinking differently, could you not use "XY To Line (Data Management Tools > Features)" using the xy for all the green dots as your "start" and the xy of your blue dot as your "end".
