Hi,

I am wanting to automatically copy selected features from one layer into another layer (including all attributes), and then delete those selected features from the first layer.  I can't figure out how to copy/paste from one layer to another.  Is it possible to do a copy/paste programmatically?  Same as if I'd started an edit session, selected some features, Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste into my target layer.

I'm working in VBA ArcGIS 10 Desktop

Mike.

Is there no way to do this?  I haven't been able to find any documentation that would suggest there is a way, but I'd be surprised if nobody had tried this before.

Thanks for your reply.  Is the Append function available in VBA or .Net and can it be run in an edit session?

I had thought it wouldn't be hard to call a Copy and Paste in VBA or .Net, but the functionality just doesn't seem to be there.

Cheers,
Mike.
