Assigning coordinates to null geometry records

I have a hydrants feature class and some of the records are null geometry.  I recently received a survey feature class that has coordinates for some of those null geometry records (both feature classes have a HydrantNumber field to link them).  Is there an easy way to transfer the coordinates from the survey feature class to the hydrants feature class?

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Kirk,

I am not sure if you have gotten around your issue yet, I am curious to know if you tried joining the tables based on the Hydrant Number Field. I believe you can then select features with a NULL Shape fields (possibly using a definition query on said table to constrain the listed features)and use field calculator on the SHAPE column to make (NULL)Shape = Shape from the populated table.

I am not sure if you can do this with the Shape field as you can with other fields. I know that the you must generate the join from the table you wish to edit.

Hope this helps!
