If there is a common key field between the two featureclasses, the simplest way is to use

Add Join—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

maybe you can clarify your situation if this isn't the approach you want to take

If the polygon geometries are identical, then use my recommendation.

If they are not, then you need to review...

An overview of the Overlay toolset—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 

one will meet your conditions regarding attributes, but you will have to decide which one covers your geometry conditions.

If that isn't clear, then perhaps you need to show your geometry and current attributes (a screen grab would suffice)

Add Join as initially suggested, provided you use a key field for the join. otherwise you are going to have bits and pieces of geometry to clean up

How about using the Attribute Transfer tool on the Spatial Adjustment toolbar (Probably not enabled by default)?  One thing you want to make sure of when using this tool is not to transfer geometry as you just want to transfer attribute data.

You can find Help on this tool to guide you and I would begin with a copy of the data so as you are learning to use this tool you don't corrupt your data.

Hi Micheal,

Can attribute transfer tool run as a batch rather need to click one-by-one data..?

Thanks
