Need help doing this common editing process. Can't find anything in ArcGis Desktop help files or search of this forum on this. Can anyone help me?
Thanks for the response. I am dealing with creating a new polygon within an existing one in the same feature layer. I followed your last paragraph and that does create the polygons but my problem has been getting the new acres to be correct. At first, when the new feature is completed, the attribute table will have the same acres for both polygons, In the past, the original larger polygon acreage has not been reduced in the amount of the new included polygon. Today in trying this, it seemed to work when I kept the edit session open and had both polygon rows selected and then "calculated geometry" and the correct acres appeared. So, hopefully, I'm in business!
