When merging, see the section on Field Mapping

Also Matt, please be careful where you are posting questions, you posted this in the Australia GIS User Group, if you had posted more in the general GIS space it would be easier for you post to be found and answered.

Thanks, i just got back into the forums here and noticed there has been some changes here in the last few months that are taking me time to get used to.

I figured out the merge, for some reason it only would merge one way
