Hi,

does anyone know how to do this:

I ve got 2 polygon feature classes. I need transfer attribute from one to another based on location.
One to one is not a problem. What I wanna do is transfer attribute(name) from all features which lies inside the feature to one field (name, name, ... ,name).

Is this possible?
thank you

If you have an ArcInfo license, you can do a Union operation. Otherwise you can use Join by Location -- which would be trickier but I think it's doable.

Once you have all the rows in a table, you can combine them using this tool the geoprocessing team posted - pretty neat:
