Hello,

I have read a few posts on creating a 1:M relationship but I am not having much success.

I have a polygon feature class representing grounds to be maintained.

I want to keep a track of the date the areas were inspected and the condition/notes.

So the polygon is the 1 and the inspections are the many

I tried to create a .dbf in the database entering a few dates at weekly increments and joined that to the polygon feature class but when I do only one record is returned. I was trying to replicate this page Temporal data in separate tables—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You have to have a unique identifier in the polygon layer that is represented in the related table.

Each record in the table has to have that unique identifier from the polygon layer.

When your observing the polygons and determining that you only have one record are you certain there should be more than one for the polygon your looking at
