I have a point file with hundreds of businesses by type (e.g. restaurants, gas stations, hospitals).  I have split this data into categories to view on my map.  I would like join only selected categories (or one at a time) to determine its distance from an address point.  I know how to join shapefiles to shapefiles but I have no idea how to join just 1 category out of the shapefile.

 

Thanks.

Sounds like you need to use a Definition Query to filter your data. This will allow you to display only selected categories and then join data or do other analysis on a subset of your entire shapefile.
