Clipping points using polygons, and keeping the polygons attributes

Hi everybody,

I have a layer of buffered polygons that act's as plots of wheat for my Masters degree experiment.

I want to clip only the points that fall inside the polygons but to keep the original polygons attribute.

By now I have managed to clip the points for new layers but the clipping feature (the polygons) attributes are not passed to the new layers.

How can I make it happend?

Since you clipped your points with your polygons already you can use a spatial join to merge the attributes of your points with the attributes of your polygons. You can turn fields on and off in your polygon layer's  properties to limit which attributes are merged.
