I have a set of over 100 individual polygon shape files that I wish to combine (merge) into a a single feature class, with a final column field in my feature class table showing the name of each shape file. For example, for a shape file called "04024000.shp", I would like a column field called "GISfilename", with the attribute for this specific feature as "04024000".
I have tried utilizing the parse path function in model builder with limited success, although I am looking for any methodology to help. I am a beginner GIS user, so please be clear and basic with your instructions.
I have attached a zip of all the files I wish to combine for your reference.
Thanks in advance,
