Hi
I have used clip tool to extract data from input feature table. my input feature table has objectid field with point geometry. when data is extracted by the clip tool it returns me all the fields in the input feature table but it creates its own objectid field in other word it does not copy the data from the objectid field of the input feature table. i want that the extracted data will also have same objectids as they are input feature table , is there any way to do it. I appreciate any comments and help
regards

Nadeem,
You will have to create a new column and calculate the values equal to the OID Column. The OID has to be a unique identifier, and clip analysis has the potential to split an existing feature into multiple parts. Therefore, the OID is recalculated for the output dataset, to insure they are all unique. However, if you create the new column, it will carry over to the result output.
Regards,
Jim
