Hi everyone! I have a question for you, and I am seeing what you do so that I can be more efficient with what I am doing now.
I have two datasets. One is within ArcMap and the other is within Access. Both contain the same exact base data, but the Access dataset has some extra attributes.
Currently, I have to update both of these datasets, and it isn't too much of a problem now. I know in the future it will become a big hassle.
Normally, I would only maintain the ArcMap dataset, but my work has to have an Access dataset as well for other people who do not use ArcMap.
I am looking for any ideas on what I should do so that I don't have to update both datasets. Thank you!
I'm assuming you're using a personal geodatabase (Access) and a file geodatabase (ESRI)?
You can join and field calculate if the two datasets have a linking value.
You can make edits from the file geodatabase then export it to the personal geodatabase.
